The University recognises many extracurricular activities on the university transcript which you receive upon graduation. Find out if you are eligible for HEAR.
What is HEAR?
The Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) will not only list all of your academic achievements but also many other achievements as well, providing you meet the criteria for each activity. This helps to demonstrate that you have developed skills and knowledge that contribute to your personal and professional development and enables you to provide employers with an official record of your accomplishments, verified by the University.
The SRC can only assist with HEAR enquiries for SRC-affiliated projects, particularly recognition for Clubs & Societies Office Bearers. Internships, scholarships and other academic related placements (including Class Reps) are administered generally with your school so in order to have this recognised on HEAR please liaise with them directly.
How to apply for HEAR recognition
- The eligible positions for HEAR recognition are President, Vice President, Secretary, or Treasurer. Only 4 individuals can receive HEAR recognition.
- Clubs and societies must nominate the 4 individuals who will receive HEAR recognition for the above positions in Semester 2 when prompted.
- To receive HEAR recognition for your role you must submit a HEAR reflective log. We only accept HEAR applications from those who have been nominated by their club/society.
Clubs and societies will be emailed in Semester 2 and asked to nominate their 4 HEAR contacts. Once we have received these all office bearers who have been nominated will be emailed the link to the reflective log. Volunteers will be contacted via email by SRC Volunteering, if they are eligible to receive recognition. All volunteering HEAR Queries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
In order to have their efforts recognised, all students must complete their HEAR form within the given time period as HEAR is not generally recognised retrospectively. Reminders will be sent leading up to the deadline.
The list of activities eligible for the HEAR is not exhaustive and you should check with the body responsible for supporting your extracurricular activity if you are unsure of its HEAR status.
