A HEAR will be available to Undergraduate students who are awarded in the 2015/16 academic year and thereafter.
You can access yours through a service called GradIntelligence. We’ll be providing you with login details shortly to enable you to access your HEAR.
The purpose of HEAR is to provide, at the end of your studies, a complete picture of your achievements at University. You can share this with potential employers and postgraduate tutors, making you stand out from other students with similar degree applications.
Your HEAR contains information on your academic performance to a module level, with results of each module displayed for each year of study.
It also includes non-academic achievements which you may have participated in during your time at University. This would involve significant participation in societies or any voluntary work that has been completed.
Aston has agreed a list of activities which can be recorded in your HEAR.* All activities in this section have been verified by the University. This section also includes any University or departmental prizes. Once you have undertaken a full commitment to the role which has been verified by the team leading the activity, these can all be added to your HEAR. Activities include:
Academic Arrival Guide
Students Into Schools - Volunteer
Sports Club Committee
Aston Volunteer of the Year
Students' Union Honorary Life Membership
Students' Union Society Committee
Students' Union Positive Commendations
Students' Union Exceptional Colours Award
Students' Union Full Societies Federation Colours
Students' Union Standing Committee
Full Athletic Union Colours
Half Athletic Union Colours
Here's an example of what your HEAR could look like:
You can access your HEAR via Gradintelligence. 2015/16 is the first year of HEAR at Aston and we will be proving you with login details shortly.
If you notice that there is an error on your HEAR, or if we've missed something, then you can contact the department or team responsible. For example, if your query relates to activity with the Students' Union then they can make the update for you. We are only able to make amendments to errors. No further amendments can be made once you received your Final HEAR.
Queries relating to your academic achievements can be directed to your School. If you have any questions about HEAR in general, fill in your details below and we'll get back to you shortly.
