The RED Award is here to help you make the most of extra-curricula actives and experiences on offer outside of your degree.
The RED Award is open to all University of Reading students, but you may find it particularly useful to sign-up in your first year so you can build-up your experience and find out more about what is on offer at the university. Since the scheme started in 2010-11, there has been over 13,00 students registering for the RED Award with over 35% going on to complete!
The award involves 40 hours of activity, including gaining 35 hours of Experience (through activity such as part-time jobs, internships, volunteering etc) and 5 hours of training and development (through workshops to help aid your development outside of your course). If you are new to award but have already completed some of this activity then you can backdate anything you have done since you started at the university!
Once you have completed the award you will receive a certificate and the completion will be added to your diploma supplement annex.
