Sheffield Graduate Award

The Sheffield Graduate Award recognises valuable skills and experience gained at university outside of your degree course.

What is it?

A prestigious 'degree PLUS' programme that recognises your individual extra-curricular achievements in local, national and international activities. The Sheffield Graduate Award represents exceptional achievement by the breadth of your skills, leadership abilities and your commitment to personal development.
