Introducing Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)

Breaking down the barriers report coverThis report seeks official endorsement from Universities UK and GuildHE for the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) to be adopted sector-wide for students entering higher education in academic year 2012–13. 


Following extensive trialling and detailed consideration, the report clearly outlines the HEAR and the additional information it provides as something that is valued by institutions, students and employers. 

Containing a rich range of information about the student’s performance and achievements, the HEAR records their time in higher education much more broadly and fully than the traditional academic transcript, and at the same time captures relevant information of interest to employers. In time, it is hoped that the wider information contained in the HEAR will eclipse the degree classification and, where appropriate, serve as a replacement for it.
