York Award

Team building, construction

‌‌‌Stand out from the crowd

University life is about much more than 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 and rewards your contribution to college life, societies, volunteering, employer events, work placements and internships and provides a helpful framework through which you can reflect on your personal and professional development.

Please note, the York Award offer has been reviewed for 2020/21. York Award will be available for all students and we expect to update this information during Autumn Term 2020. Please check back for further information as it becomes available.
