Higher Education Achievement Report

The Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR) is a formal degree transcript that provides a full record of your university achievements, including both academic and extra-curricular learning and experience.

It’s an electronic document that can be accessed online while studying for your degree or after you’ve graduated and are applying for employment or further study. The HEAR serves as a formal means for the University to recognise your achievements and participation in University life outside the formal curriculum. It not only records programme details, marks and degree classification but also details of time spent studying abroad, prizes and awards, volunteering activity and more.

Details of these other activities will be recorded in section 6.1 ‘Additional Achievements’ in your record. This means that the HEAR enables you to present a much more rounded view of how you spent your time at Westminster and supports you in demonstrating your potential to employers.

In the face of an increasingly competitive environment, the HEAR will be a key resource for helping employers and others to appreciate the breadth of your capabilities.

Alongside the HEAR, you will continue to receive an academic transcript and award certificate.

The HEAR is being issued to University of Westminster Undergraduate students (not including students on courses at partner institutions) who commenced their studies from September 2014 onwards. If you are an Undergraduate students who started their course in September 2015, you will be contacted via your university email address in December 2015, with further information on how to register for your HEAR.

If you started your studies before September 2014, you will not be eligible for the HEAR but will receive a full academic transcript along with your award certificate.

For further information, please visit the official HEAR website or read our frequently asked questions.
