Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR)
We provide a HEAR to graduates of the University who were enrolled on full-time undergraduate degree courses, or integrated Master’s degrees, from 2011/12 and studied at the Belfast, Coleraine, Jordanstown or Magee campus.
The HEAR is a digital document containing a detailed record of academic and non-academic achievements gained while studying at Ulster University to supplement the traditional degree award. It is available to graduates.
Why engage with the HEAR?
Your HEAR document is designed to showcase your skills and achievements to enhance your employability or opportunities for further study. It does this by capturing not just your academic achievements but also other achievements and contributions outside of your degree programme, recognised by the University as representing real achievement. (See list below of HEAR recognised activities.)
The HEAR includes modules taken, results obtained and qualification. It also provides information about the qualification and requirements for obtaining the award. Activities and roles undertaken outside the academic curriculum are displayed at section 6.1 of the document.
Who will see my HEAR?
Your HEAR can be shared electronically with authorised third parties such as employers to support job applications or postgraduate tutors when applying for further studies.
