NCL+ Award

Did you know that when you do extra-curricular activity, you can get this accredited by Newcastle University and if you are studying Biomedical Sciences it will be put on put on your University transcript (HEAR).

Being at University is so much more than your course; it’s also about being part of something, playing sports, making friends, volunteering and learning from new experiences. Alongside your degree, these extra-curricular activities and the skills you develop through them help make you more employable.

The ncl+ Award is a way for you to demonstrate these skills to employers. Whether it’s being a rep, a member of a club or society, volunteering, part time work – if you are doing something outside of your course, the ncl+ Award is perfect for you!

Why should I do the NCL+ Award?

Employers are increasingly looking for candidates who stand out from the crowd. They value skills such as:

  • Personal enterprise
  • Communication
  • Teamwork
  • Self-awareness and reflection
  • Planning and organising

You may already be developing these as part of your extra-curricular activities. Through the ncl+ Award, you can reflect on your skills and articulate these when making applications.

The ncl+ Award team will provide support throughout the year to help you make the most of your achievements and skills beyond university.

NCL+ is closed for 2017/18? It will open in September for the 2018/19 academic year. You can find out more through the following links:
