About the Go Herts Award

The Go Herts Award is an exciting initiative which recognises your engagement in a range of extra-curricular activities outside of the assessed part of your degree. The Go Herts Award is open to all students but will only be awarded to you when you graduate, at the end of your Programme of Study.

The University of Hertfordshire is committed to providing experiences that can transform lives through a range of extra-curricular opportunities including voluntary work, research, enterprise initiatives, community engagement and work experience. It is through these opportunities that our students are able to develop valuable skills beyond their academic studies and graduate with more than a degree.

Students who achieve a Go Herts Award will stand out from the crowd as educated, well-rounded, enterprising global citizens who are well prepared for life after university.
