Duke of Edinburgh's International Award
Experiences outside the classroom help you become committed, responsible, and fulfilled global citizens.
The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award and is available to students aged 14 and up. It equips you for life, regardless of your background, culture, physical ability, skills, or interests. Doing the Award is a personal challenge and not a competition against others. It pushes you to your personal limits and recognizes your achievements.

Overview and Benefits
Doing the International Award is a real adventure from beginning to end. You just need to be over 14 years old and want to do something different, adventurous, and fun!
You choose what you are going to do, so your program can be full of activities and projects that get you excited.
Along the way you’ll pick up experiences, friends, and skills that will stay with you for life. Better still, having an International Award has been shown to make people stand out from the crowd when it comes to job and university interviews. It gives you something to put on your CV, lots to talk about at an interview, and shows you’ve developed the skills interviewers are looking for.
The Award is comprised of three levels and four sections. Participants complete all four sections at each level in order to achieve their Award. At Gold level, participants also complete a Residential Project.
So why should you do your International Award? What are you going to get out of doing it? Well, the benefits are endless. It’s difficult to list them all, so here’s a quick snapshot. You will:
