About us

 

The Duke of Edinburgh's Award Society has been helping members achieve their Gold Award for well over a decade; we are one of only a handful of wholly student-run DofE centres! You are more than welcome to join our society, whether you're new to DofE or a seasoned pro. Please contact us if you want to get involved!

What do we do?

Whether you're a Gold participant, a casual member, or if you just love hiking, be sure to not miss our events!

  • Gold DofE Award: we provide in-depth expedition training, and provide opportunities for the other sections of the Gold Award
  • Fun socials: we have loads of great socials on offer, including board games, pool socials, 🧀 &🍷 (cheese & wine), etc.
  • Local night hikes / day walks: escape the Uni bubble and explore the local scenery, in our walks around campus, Kenilworth, Leam and more!
  • Weekend trips: we have annual trips to Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons, and more to see some remote parts of the country
