High Achievers Recognition Scheme (HARS)

The High Achievers Recognition Scheme (HARS) has been running in the Faculty of Health, Education and Life Sciences since 2015-16. Since this point, the scheme has worked with many students to nurture their development alongside their degree programmes, encouraging them to become their best selves through a series of additional courses, workshops, seminars and skills development, working with both internal and external resources.

In February this year, the scheme were able to confer the award of Scholar onto successful HARS students, following a competitive application and interview process.

HARS Scholars are now actively developing themselves in more personalised ways, and are using their scholarship monies to further their own professional skills, knowledge and growth, with support from the HARS scheme.

In addition, these Scholars are working with the scheme to promote, nurture and continually revise the offer, to provide a scheme which truly empowers eligible students to step onto the scheme and grow as undergraduate healthcare and education students facing a competitive marketplace upon qualification.
