The NEW York Award is here! Let York Award shine a light on everything you've done at university, even through a global pandemic.

We appreciate that getting experience and accessing opportunities is more difficult at the moment. However you’ve found the last 12 months, York Award can help you to find value and meaning in the things you have done.

Applications for current final year undergraduates open 9:00AM Monday 8 March 2021 and close 11:00PM Sunday 4 April 2021 - Find out what's required and how to register for York Award

There will be further application opportunities for penultimate year undergraduates and postgraduates later in the year. 

University life is about much more than just your degree. There are so many opportunities to develop your strengths and enhance your skills to make you more attractive to employers.

The York Award recognises participation in some elements of Your Career Journey. Everything required to make an application is accessible online. We will also ensure any support materials can be accessed remotely.

The York Award provides a helpful framework through which you can reflect on your personal and professional development within and outside your programme of study, and recognises and rewards your contribution to college life, societies, volunteering, employer events, work placements and internships. Use York Award to find the positives from last year and shine a light on everything you’ve done at university.

Taking part in York Strengths is a great place to start, further support and information is also available via our Covid-19 page on the Careers and Placements website, including how to book an appointment and further resources. 

Whatever you've done during your time at York, make it count with York Award.
