It is a new initiative for 1st and 2nd year full-time undergraduate students at Ulster.
The award has been designed to enhance the employability of Ulster students by providing official recognition and evidence of activities outside your programme of study.
It is taken in addition to your degree and it is free to enrol. For the award you will take part in a wide range of activities to enhance your career prospects and also to show future employers you are committed to developing your personal skills. When you graduate from Ulster, the EDGE award will appear on your official transcript - giving you the 'edge' in your career.
You must register for the award in order to have the activities you take part in counted.
