The UEA Award is 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, that help develop your skills and attributes, for 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. A student must complete a certain number of hours of activity to reach these levels. This allows students to make a time commitment that suits them and balance the award alongside their studies.


By getting involved in the award, you don't just gain new experience and skills - you also receive a certificate from the university. Our careers service also has a dedicated award team to support you on your journey.
