UCD strives to provide an educational experience that defines international best practice. A key element of this is enhancing the learning opportunities for students outside of the classroom. Co-curricular activity provides tremendous scope for students to develop the skills, knowledge and experience required to flourish in a global society.

To recognise the value to the individual, university and the wider community of co-curricular engagement, and to acknowledge the personal development that our students gain through co-curricular activity, UCD offers two co-curricular skills awards – the UCD Embark Award and the UCD Advantage Award.

On this website you will find everything that you need to know about both of these awards, including why you should get involved, how to get involved and how to successfully achieve the awards.
