Any member of staff from Cardiff Met or Cardiff Met Students' Union can nominate an activity for inclusion in the HEAR. As well as meeting the criteria for developing graduate attributes, the activity must also

  • Take place between enrolment and graduation
  • Have verifiable records
  • Be open to all students, or to a designated group of students

A validation panel made up of representatives from across Cardiff Met meets twice per year to consider new nominations and agree which ones will be added to the list. Once an activity is agreed, providing the activity owner returns the forms requested, any current or future student who is recorded as participating in the activity will have it added to Section 6.1 of their HEAR. ​
