The UEA Award certifies our students' achievements in ways employers value – giving you a competitive advantage in your chosen job market.

The award gives you recognition for a range of academic and extra-curricular activities that help develop your skills and attributes, for employment and life.

These activities include:

  • giving presentations
  • volunteering
  • finding and making the most of internships
  • entrepreneurship
  • creating videos
  • society involvement

and so much more.


By getting involved in the award, you don't just gain new experience and skills – you also receive a certificate from the university.

The award consists of three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. Our students must complete a certain number of hours of activity to reach each of these levels.

The scheme allows you to devote time to your future career alongside your study commmitments in a way that suits your lifestyle

Our careers service also has a dedicated award team to support you on your journey.
