Cyrielle Mevel. Nottingham Advantage Award Co-ordinator: We’re the Nottingham Advantage
Award team and we’re here to tell you how you can take part in the Award.
Matthew Lumley. Nottingham Advantage Award Officer: Firstly, visit our Careers and Employability
website – nottingham.ac.uk/advantageaward, and search for our web page. From there you
can have a look at our module catalogue, find which module you’re interested in, and apply.
Cyrielle Mevel. Nottingham Advantage Award Co-ordinator: So applications open at two
points during the year – in August and in November.
Matthew Lumley. Nottingham Advantage Award Officer: Remember, you can do up to 20 credits
in an academic year, so there’s a flexibility for you to do it over two or three years.
Natasha Clark. BVMBVS Veterinary Medicine and Veterinary Surgery: So, I wanted to take
part in the Nottingham Advantage Award because I wanted to do something different than what
I do every day at Vet School in the modules. Serena Gough. MEng Hons Civil Engineering:
The module ‘Employability Skills for Engineers’ stood out to me because it was highly beneficial
in preparation for applications to internships and graduate schemes.
Poppy Howe. MEng Aerospace Engineering including an Industrial Year: You can talk about your
Award experience in the recruitment process by including the modules that you’ve taken
on your CV, and what you’ve learned from taking the modules and also the skills that
you’ve attained from doing so. Cyrielle Mevel. Nottingham Advantage Award
