HEAR for Students

HEAR stands for Higher Education Achievement Report. This is a report of your University achievements, including academic results and extra-curricular activities and awards.

Section 6.1 of the HEAR includes factually-based, non-evaluative details of extra-curricular activities or achievements verified by the University. Through section 6.1, the University aims to provide recognition for additional activities as a means to support you in the development of the York St John University Graduate Attributes and your future employability. See the Graduate Attributes Flyer (PDF, 1MB) for more information.

The HEAR is a written report that lists in sections your achievements during your time at University including module titles and grades, any awards you have received and any extra-curricular activites that you have been involved in.

You will be given details at the start of your programme that will allow you to access your HEAR through Gradintel. Gradintel are a company who provide the IT solution for many Universities for the HEAR. They also provide other services to employers who are able (data protection permitting) to search HEAR records when seeking graduates with specific skills.

In addition to having online access to your HEAR, you can create a personal profile within your personal Gradintel space. You can use your HEAR as a prompt at job applications and interviews, for writing covering letters and personal statements.
