“I feel the Degree Plus Award is a fantastic opportunity for students of Queen’s to receive credit for their skills they have gained and developed through experiences outside of their academic life at university.” Aisling Devin, BMUS Music
"I really liked the innovative idea of gaining official recognition for experiences outside your degree at Queen's. What attracted me to Degree Plus was that you can personalise your own award and work at your own pace. I hope to acquire skills and knowledge that will stand me in good stead after life at university. I have combined a variety of extra-curricular experiences to gain the award. I have been elected to the Students Union Council this year, have become active in a number of university societies and am working towards gaining the EDCL qualification. The wide range of activities from which you can choose means that you are sure to be able to find a path where you can explore things that interest you, develop new skills and have fun all at the same time!" Mark Wallace, BSC Mathematics
“Overall, my time at Queen’s has been a period when I’ve learnt and developed so much both professionally and personally and have had plenty of positive experiences. This has been a very large part because of my involvement in the various extra-curricular activities that I have outlined for the Degree Plus Award. Participating in these activities really did bring its own reward.” Sheila O’Neil, BSc Nursing Sciences
"This has given me a lot of ideas to work on, programmes that will suit me as a person and also which suit the path I take. I heard about Degree Plus from a 2nd year student then I researched on Queen’s website and booked my place for this meeting".
