As a Third Spacer, you will be invited to participate in the Edinburgh Award for Global Citizenship Overseas. The award is specially designed for students who play an active role in reflecting, sharing, and engaging with a new culture in order to understand their place and impact in a community of global citizens.
About the Edinburgh Award
The Edinburgh Award rewards students for taking part in activities alongside their studies like volunteering, part-time work, and getting involved in the University community. Award activities – such as face-to-face sessions and online reflection – wrap around these activities, helping you make the most of these meaningful experiences and giving you recognition for your involvement. EUSA and the University run numerous versions of the Edinburgh Award across campus.
Anyone successfully completing the Edinburgh Award will receive both a certificate of recognition from the University and an entry on their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEARs – an expanded record of your achievements within the University).
