Degree Plus


What is it?

Degree Plus is an opportunity for any current Queen’s student to get involved and gain accreditation from Queen’s for completing extra-curricular work related learning alongside their degree. 


Why do it?

Over 2000 Students successfully complete Degree Plus each year.  In doing so, they build up valuable experience(s) and practice in articulating their development and achievements to others (e.g. employers or activity providers via application, presentation or interview).  They also receive a certificate at graduation.


How to do it?

There are over 150 activities to choose from (work; global opportunities; professional & leadership and/or community & voluntary experiences).  Some can be completed at any time during your course or holidays, others are delivered at specific dates e.g. during Development Weeks.  All approved activities are published on a Degree Plus “Activity Menu”.

Most students gain Degree Plus by completing a Provider Verified Activity (Route A).  It is also possible to gain recognition for more than one activity and/or to self-nominate by submitting e.g. a Combined Experience Application (Route B).

A step by step explanation of how to gain degree plus is provided in MyFuture>DegreePlus
