Go Herts Award

The Go Herts Award is the perfect way to complement your studies and gain recognition for participating in activities outside of your course. You might already use your free time to spend your time working on mentoring, work experience, volunteering, societies, or sports. Or you might not be sure where to start to build your CV beyond your course. It’s why you need the Go Herts Award.

Standing out in job applications and interviews is your route to your dream career. Employers want to see and hear about the skills and knowledge you have developed as part of your course and beyond. The Go Herts Award means you get to create your own university story, giving you the edge.

What is a Go Herts Award?

We award points based on what you have achieved and award on three levels: bronze, silver and gold. There is a list of qualifying activities on StudyNet that you can choose from. This is the evidence that demonstrates your skills and experience against each of the University’s graduate attributes.

Your Go Herts Award will also be included on your transcript when you graduate to show everything you’ve achieved outside of your course.
