Is it for you?
If you’re an undergraduate student with plenty of enthusiasm for activities outside your main academic studies, then the Nottingham Advantage Award is designed with you in mind. Apply now!
You will participate in a mixture of activities delivered by both academic schools and non-academic departments that provide you with opportunities to enhance your learning and be recognised for your contribution to activities outside your core curriculum.
How much time does it take?
The teaching elements equal around 20 hours. This can comprise workshops or the equivalent in online learning. You will be required to spend around 40 hours conducting independent study for the work you will submit for assessment.
In order to award you credits for your work, we will need to assess your performance. There are no extra exams, but we will just ask you to do some reflective activities like keeping a journal or putting together an e-portfolio. This all contributes to one of the main aims of the award ─ reflective learning.
Students who are interested to complete three (3) modules are advised to take them during their first
two years of study to be eligible for the Nottingham Advantage Award.
