Nottingham Advantage Award


 What is Nottingham Advantage Award (NAA)?

The Advantage Award is the University's employability award. The aim of the Advantage Award is to ensure that students of the University of Nottingham have the opportunity to develop a range of attributes and skills and engage in activities that will enhance their overall learning experience and employability.

The award will also help students to consider how these can best be shown to employers when they graduate.

The award and its component modules provide learning in addition to academic programs, usually through extra and co-curricular activities.

For the Award, you will:

  • Complete 30 credits to gain the Award; each module is 10 or 20 credits
  • Complete a maximum of 20 credits in an academic year; the marks do not count towards your overall degree result
  • Credits can be transferred from UK or Malaysia campuses
  • Award modules should comply with the University Regulations for Undergraduate Courses
