The York Award is a way for you to demonstrate to employers that you have worked proactively while at university to develop yourself beyond your degree.

Use examples from your extra-curricular activities, societies, volunteering and work experience to show that your time at York is preparing you in a well-rounded way to become an excellent future employee.

The York Award can be completed as stage one, or Gold, and from Autumn Term 2017 we will be introducing York Leaders. First year students and postgraduate students can apply for stage one, and second year and postgraduate students can apply for Gold.
