Your Official HEAR
Your official HEAR will be issued to you via a secure online system called ShARe (Sheffield Authorised Records), in the form of an embedded PDF.
From March in your first year, you will be issued with official 'snapshots' of your HEAR-so-far ('Interim HEARs') via ShARe. These will allow you to share results and achievements that have already been verified, as you begin to apply for internships, jobs, or further study. If you leave the University before completing your course, you will continue to have access to your latest Interim HEAR, to provide you with an official record of the achievements you obtained during your time at Sheffield.
At the end of your course, during Graduation week, your HEAR will be finalised in the ShARe system. This will give you official confirmation of your full set of university results and achievements (your 'Exit HEAR').
You will continue to have access to ShARe after graduation, and you will be able to use ShARe to give other people (e.g. employers/postgraduate admissions tutors) permission to view your HEAR as well, so that you can use your HEAR as official evidence of your university learning and experience.
How often will be my HEAR be updated in ShARe?
Your HEAR will be updated 3 times each year following each of the main examination periods:
To login, you will need the following details (both can be found in Section 1 of your Internal HEAR on MUSE):
To find out more about the ShARe system, visit the ShARe information page on the SSiD website.
Please note that the HEAR is only applicable to undergraduates who are studying for a defined qualification at the University of Sheffield. Incoming Study Abroad and Erasmus students will not therefore receive a HEAR. However, Study Abroad and Erasmus students will be able to access their results online in the same way as all other undergraduate students, and will also, at the end of their studies, be issued with an electronic Transcript via the ShARe system, providing them with official confirmation and evidence of their results.
