Why sign up for the Adelaide Graduate Award?

Be recognised

You'll receive formal recognition of your extra-curricular experiences as the Award is listed on your University transcript.  You'll also receive a certificate of completion.

Develop your employability skills

The Award recognises your participation in non-academic activities while studying at University. It also encourages you to reflect on - and develop - the employability skills gained through taking part in activities outside your degree.

The experience of taking part in these activities combined with the ability to reflect on and actively develop your skills will help you prepare for graduate employment.

Make new connections

Through completing the Award, you will meet new people from a wide variety of backgrounds. It is recognised today that networking is an extremely important part of obtaining a graduate job, and the activities you undertake for the Award will provide many opportunities. You may even make some new friends along the way!

Prepare for life after university

It can be difficult to stand out from other graduates, and a key way of differentiating yourself is extra-curricular activity.

Employers are looking for graduates who have a proven commitment to personal development and who are able to articulate their skills and abilities. Completing the Adelaide Graduate Award provides a perfect way to demonstrate this to potential employers.

Build your resume

The Award will look neat on your resume. Combine it with the ability to show employers that you are able to recognise your skills and abilities and show that you have taken active steps to develop these further, and you will be an attractive prospect!
