The activities you complete as part of the Big Essex Award (3, 4 and 5 unit activities, indicated with an orange shield logo) will be verified by us and included on your university digital transcript, the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) or Further Achievement Report (FAR) if you’re a postgraduate research student.
You can achieve a level of the Award by logging 3-, 4- and 5-unit activities for verification, the Award is made up of four levels:
- Bronze (5 units)
- Silver (10 units)
- Gold (15 units)
- Platinum (20 units)
To get started, you will need to log into your Gradintelligence account. You can then keep track of all your extra-curricular achievements by reflecting on activities you do on or off campus. From this, Chart My Path can suggest your next steps and provide you with a personalised timeline of your progress and achievements.
Ensure you log your Big Essex Award activities by 1 June deadline each year for them to be recognised the next time your HEAR updates, or on your final HEAR if you are a final year student.
