Student voice

“The Plymouth Award gave me the opportunity to receive recognition for my extracurricular activities while at university. It also gave me the opportunity to take a cathartic reflection on my time at university, which was invaluable for me to realise that I have gained in confidence, that teaching as a career was a possibility for me. Without it I would be still searching for a career, with no idea which route to take.”

Bridget Phillips, BSc (Hons) Sociology Year 3

How does it work?

You can complete the scheme in four easy steps.

  • Your name
  • Your student ID number
  • Year of graduation
  • Campus you study on

Once the Award team has received your details, the Award module will be listed on your personal site for the current academic year (this may take a few days). You'll receive an email confirmation from the team when it's all set up and ready to go.

2) Complete a plan: You'll fill in a simple online document setting out what you plan to do as part of your journey towards achieving the Plymouth Award. This plan will include the particular activities you'd like to do. Once completed, the plan is shared with the Award management team.

Your Higher Education Achievement Report

Every year, as thousands of our students graduate on Plymouth Hoe, they receive degree certificates which record the academic successes amassed during their studies at the University of Plymouth. But many of our graduates do much outside the classroom which could go unrecorded.

Your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) will recognise and record any extra-curricular activities which are formally recognised by the University – for example being a Student Ambassador.
