What is the Warwick Award?

It’s never too early to start thinking about what you might do after graduation, and what skills you need to do it. The Warwick Award can help you do just that.

On this page, we've together a range of information to help you better understand what the Award is and how is works. Specifically, you'll find:

  • An overview of the Warwick Award and the 12 Core Skills it is built around
  • An explanation of what Core Skills Points are and how they fit into the Award
  • Videos from students already registered for the Award explaining why they got involved
  • Full details of the different levels of the Award
  • A range of FAQs about the Award

Pulling from your academic modules, as well as anything else you get involved with - such as societies, sports teams, volunteering, internships, placements, or even part-time work - the Warwick Award recognises and showcases the skills you’re building through those activities. It also highlights training and development opportunities so you can craft a full range of skills to help set you up for a fantastic start to life after graduation.

The Award can be personalised to allow you to shape your own employability skills development. It is free for all undergraduates and taught postgraduates - as well as exchange and degree apprenticeship students. For undergraduates, it will appear on your Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) transcript, while all students who complete the Award will be issued with a digital certificate and digital badge by the Skills Team.
