The UEA Award is a framework that enables students to articulate their achievements in a way that employers value giving them a competitive advantage in today’s job market.

We currently have over 1,000 students registered on the Award, across all Schools and year groups, showing the value students place on taking part.

The Award gives students recognition for a range of activities, both academic and extra-curricular, undertaken during their time at UEA, that help develop the skills and attributes for both life and employment. These activities cover many different aspects, including presentations, volunteering, internships, entrepreneurship, creating videos, society involvement and so much more.   

The Award consists of three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold, with each having a certain number of hours of activity a student must complete. By having these three tiers, it allows students to commit to a time suitable for them and balance the Award alongside their studies.

By getting involved in the Award, students not only gain new experience and skills, they also receive a certificate from the University. Within the Careers Service we also have a dedicated Award Team to support students on their journey.
