New for September 2023, The Stellify Award for Masters students gives you the chance to make a difference in a way that feels authentic to you, your passions and interests. Through volunteering, leadership roles and ethical grand challenges, you’ll not only take action to help causes you truly care about, but will also be prepared for life after university and will enter the world of work feeling confident in your abilities.
Thursday 7th December at 1pm - 3pm in the SEED IAG Hub in Humanities Bridgeford Street Building
From becoming a PASS leader or Sustainability Champion, through to involvement with societies, sports teams, volunteering and more, there are lots of activities to choose from that will help you progress towards earning the award - all designed to fit around your postgraduate studies and personal interests.
The programme of activities builds on the Stellify Award for undergraduates, and is open to both new postgraduate taught students and those continuing after their undergraduate studies here. Upon completion of the award, you'll receive a certificate at your graduation ceremony.
