Nottingham Advantage Award


The Advantage Award is the University of Nottingham’s free employability scheme.

The Award offers a variety of modules and you can do up to two per year in addition to your degree. The modules enable you to:

  • get recognition for extra-curricular activities you are doing, such as a part-time job or a role in a society committee.
  • try something new! For example, take part in a placement or work experience with a local organisation, work as a team in simulated business scenarios, or, visit local schools to teach languages and literacy.
  • meet other students.
  • identify and reflect on the skills you have gained.
  • showcase your skills to employers.

There is plenty on offer to enrich your time at Nottingham and add to your CV. When you graduate, any modules that you have completed will be printed on your transcript.
