Secondary Transcript - Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS)

 

What is a Secondary Transcript (AHEGS)?

This is a transcript that is provided in addition to your academic transcript containing information relating to any special achievements or awards you have received or approved volunteer programs or activities.

The approved activities that can be listed on your secondary transcript provide an opportunity for you to improve your career prospects and employability by enhancing your degree, allowing you to contribute to the community, increasing your skills and broadening your experience. There are many approved activities that can be listed on your secondary transcript within the Faculty and across the University such as:

  • Advanced Science camp leader (Advanced Science students only)

  • Student Clubs and Society managing positions

  • Faculty and School Peer Mentors

  • Peer Tutors

  • Science Student Ambassadors

  • UNSW Sunswift Solar Racing Team

  • ASPIRE Ambassadors

  • Student Representatives on Faculty Education Committees and Faculty Standing Committees, School Committees and Faculty Curriculum Committees

  • Student Volunteer Programs

From 2010, Secondary Transcript information has been incorporated into the Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS). All UNSW students completing program requirements will receive an Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement on graduation that will also include information on your award and the University.
