RED Award

The Reading Experience and Development (RED) Award is a University scheme that rewards students for undertaking extra-curricular activities as well as helping them get the most out of their experiences in terms of their professional and personal development. 

It is important to leave university with more than just a degree and the RED Award will help to give you that little extra. 

Employers are looking for applicants who stand out from the crowd and who recognise their own abilities and ambitions. The RED Award will help you to do just this and will therefore be useful when you come to apply for jobs, work experience or other opportunities 

All students who are successful in completing the RED Award will have this formally recognised on their degree transcript. ​

The RED Award is open to all University students whether undergraduate or postgraduate, full-time or part-time, taught or research students.
