What is the UEA Award? What is the UEA Award?

The UEA Award recognises a range of activities, both academic and extra-curricular, undertaken during your time at UEA that help you develop the skills and attributes for both life and employment when you finish your course. The Award has been developed in conjunction with employers and culminates in a certificate from the University.

The Award has three levels: Bronze, Silver and Gold, to cater for differing levels of commitment, with a minimum number of hours required for each category of activity. A very wide range of activities count towards the Award and these are divided into four categories: ‘Academic’, ‘Work-related’, ‘Campus and Personal’ and ‘Career Management’.

The Award reached over a 1000 registered students in the academic year 2016-17 and over 1200 in 2017-18, from all Schools and year groups. The UEA Award is a programme which is known as a ‘skills award’ which are now well-established in universities, with over three quarters of UK universities currently having an award.

For a summary of what the UEA Award is, why take part in it and details of Award levels and hours, please see our UEA Award pamphlet flip book. If you still have questions about the UEA Award, please see our FAQ sheet or contact award@uea.ac.uk. You can also call us on 01603 591032.
