The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

The Award

̨UUApp is proud to offer The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award to our students. The Award is an internationally recognised program that acknowledges the diverse activities and skills which participants are committed to. During their time achieving the Award, a student will develop new skills and interests; meet new friends while strengthening current friendships and be rewarded for their efforts.

Although the Award means different things to different people, one big advantage is that it is immediately recognisable and highly regarded by companies, educational institutions and many other organisations around the world. The 'Duke of Ed' award demonstrates a well-rounded and committed individual who is diligent, confident and reliable; all traits that can be difficult to project onto a CV. Most of all, the Award is designed to be fun and fulfilling and ̨UUApp is keen to ensure this is the case.

The Bronze Duke of Edinburgh, which has a required age of 14, will take a minimum of six months to complete and a student will be expected to do either one hour a week, or two hours a fortnight of Fitness, Skill Development and Volunteering. It also involves a two-day/one-night practice journey and two-day/one-night qualifying journey. It is likely that most students are already doing these things in Year 9 as part of their commitments at school.

Registration for 2023 is now open to our current Year 8 students.

A $265 fee per student is payable to the College to cover camp and staffing costs as well as the Award fee.

Payment can be made via the Online Payment link at the top of the website.
