What is the Leicester Award?
The Leicester Award for Employability encompasses a range of employability courses and experiences available to University of Leicester students. All programmes are designed to help you to develop, assess, recognise and record the employability skills you are gaining through extra and co-curricular activities.
Some additional places have become available for the WISE programme. Click here to register an interest.
Watch this space for some summer opportunities which will be advertised in the coming weeks. If you are interested in doing a Leicester Award let us know.
How can I achieve the Leicester Award?
The Leicester Award is achieved by taking part in one of the accredited extracurricular LA experiences combined with the completion of the core LA unit on blackboard.
Most experiences start in November and finish in April the following year.
Students are only able to enrol on one LA experience per academic year
