Award FAQs

Will I be able to fit the award in along-side my studies?

Yes! What’s great about the award is that you get out of it what you put in and because it can be completed at any time during your studies you can easily fit it around other commitments.

You don’t have to stick to one type of Activity. You can count all your activities towards the award, which makes building up hours easy! 

When during my studies can I sign-up to the award? 

The Student Success Award is open to all students regardless of what level you are. The programme runs alongside the traditional academic year calendar (September – May). However you can count activities that you have been taking part in retrospectively for a period of 6 months, so even if you can’t start the sessions immediately you can start collecting hours of activities and start the sessions later in the year.

We do advise that students in thier final year think carefully about undertaking the award programme as well as thier final year of studies. If you have any questions about this please do not hesitate to ask. 

How long does it take to complete the award?

The award needs to be completed within one academic year and runs from October – May, so approximately 9 months.

If you start the award in your first year and didnt complete you would still be able to finish it off in your second year. 

Where can I find out more information?

Come to a drop-in session which will be held from September 2016 onwards. Visit our webpages, facebook, twitter or e-mail us and we will answer any questions you have about the award.

What will I receive once I have completed the Student Success Award?

As well as a full toolkit of ideas, experience and evidence which can be utilised throughout your future career we also produce an individual certificate and hold a ceremony each year. At this ceremony you can have your certificate presented to you and celebrate your achievements with your fellow award students.
