Benefits of the Award

Why sign up for the Adelaide Graduate Award?

Be recognised

You'll receive formal recognition for 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

Networking plays a significant role in obtaining a graduate job, and the activities you undertake for the Award will provide many opportunities. You will meet people from a wide variety of backgrounds and 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 experience.

Employers are looking for graduates who have a proven commitment to personal development and who can 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 can recognise your skills and abilities and show that you have taken active steps to develop these further, and you will be an attractive prospect!
