If you’re an undergraduate and started in 2014 or after, or a postgraduate taught student and started in 2018 or after, you will have access to a HEAR. You just need to activate your account.
Your HEAR will be updated at the end of each academic year to reflect your achievements in each module. When you graduate, your HEAR will be finalised and you’ll have full access to it for life.
If you’re an undergraduate who started before 2014 or a you're a postgraduate taught student who started before 2018, you won’t have access to a HEAR but you’ll have received a printed transcript of your academic results when you graduated.
Please note that because the HEAR is an academic transcript, enlisting modular achievements, these are not applicable for students studying research-only provision.
How it works
If you want your activities, like being a Course Representative or being on your Sports Exec, to be shown on your HEAR then you’ll need to sign up to the
Big Essex Award. It’s a really simple process and anything you complete through the Award will automatically be shown on your HEAR, along with any awards and prizes you receive.
