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
- finding and making the most of internships
- creating videos
- society involvement
and so much more.
How it works
The UEA Award helps our students reflect on the skills they gain from their academic and extra-curricular activities.
It's a simple framework that helps you articulate your achievements to employers.
By getting involved in the award, you don't just gain new experience and skills – you also receive a certificate from the university. The scheme allows you to devote time to your future career alongside your study commmitments in a way that suits your lifestyle
The award has three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold.
Our students must complete a certain number of hours of activity to reach each of these levels.
- Bronze level is a series of online activities and related quizzes that give you the foundation for completing the other UEA Award stages.
- Silver and Gold levels require short reflections on activities that fall within four categories: Academic, Work-related, Campus and Personal and Career Management. Each category has a specific number of hours of activities to complete.
Our careers service can support you on your journey.
