HEAR Requirements for Students' Union Committee Members

All undergraduate students have a HEAR. 

2018/19 Committee Members​

Just been elected to a 2018/19 committee? Congratulations!

The first required task for HEAR verification is to register that you are on a committee by submitting a Committee Details Part B form here.

You need to do this by Friday 18th May to ensure that your society stays active and registered into 2018/19.

2017/18 Committee Members

If you would like your 2017/18 committee position to be recorded in your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR), you need to complete the following tasks within the 2017/18 committee year (April/May 2017 - April/May 2018):

Step 1. You should have registered your committee position by submitting your Committee Details Part B form by Friday 20th October 2017 at the very latest (or have been granted an extension by staff)

Step 2. You should have attended the full duration of one training session from the 2017/18 Society/Committee Training Programme - the programmes ran in April/May 2017,  October/November 2017 and February/March 2018. If you are on two committees or hold more than one role in a single committee, then you should have attended one training session for each committee role. Even if you attended training in 2016/17 (or any previous year), you still needed to attend a session in 2017/18.

Step 3. When you are coming to the end of your role, you need to submit a Committee Member Exit Form by Friday 11th May 2018.

Step 4. Stay in your role from the date of handover to you (from the 2016/17 committee member) until the agreed date of handover to the 2018/19 committee member, following your election during Society Election weeks (19th March - 25th March 2018 & 16th April - 22nd April 2018). Any committee members who resign before this time cannot have their role recorded in their HEAR.

If you complete these steps, then your committee position will be added to your HEAR by staff on 30th June 2018 (after you have completed your role).
