We want you to succeed in all aspects of your university experience and beyond. We know how good you are, so we want to give you the opportunity to show everyone else.
The Bucks Award is divided into sections with the idea that by the time you leave university you have something in every section – a completely achievable goal thanks to all the free opportunities you have access to. Even if you don't have every element covered, we want you to be able to talk about your experiences in an effective way that can be relatable to the career of your choice.
Anything you’ve done with us from recreational activites to running in the #BSUElections will be detailed on your Bucks Award and can be used to demonstrate cultural, social or self awareness.
The Bucks Award can be used as an ongoing reflective tool to identify any areas you feel we can help you develop – maybe you have accrued many volunteering hours but would like to secure a leadership role or maybe you’ve attended lots of skills sessions and would like to use those skills working for us. It can also be a way of showing prospective employers the many activities you have been involved in, thereby demonstrating the transferable skills and experiences you’ve picked up during your time at university.
