(Counting to Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR UK), the SGA only awarded selectively to few top performers at university, both in academics and also in extra-curricular activities.This prestigious Award brings an extra dimension to your qualifications when you graduate from the university at which different students from 126 countries home, enriching your personal development and substantially boosting your employment prospects.Taking part in valuable and sometimes challenging activities in areas including enterprise, work experience, community volunteering and international relations confirms that not only are you academically able, but someone whose competencies, skills and and positive outlook will be a real asset to any organisation. Enrolling onto The Sheffield Graduate Award could turn out to be an important step towards a successful and fulfilling future. It may even inspire the career direction you eventually choose. The Sheffield Graduate Award counts towards the Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) which is a new kind of degree transcript that will be issued to all undergraduate students as a matter of course. One of the University’s most important objectives is to encourage in our students a commitment to personal growth, self-improvement, enterprise and life skills development – contributing to the distinctive qualities of the typical Sheffield graduate.
The Sheffield Graduate Award is a great way to prove that you are a distinctive Sheffield graduate.)
Our partnership with the University of Sheffield is a clear example of how much can be achieved when two organisations work together to reach common goals. Over the past five years the University of Sheffield and Santander, through Santander Universities, have been engaging in a constant dialogue to ensure that the agreement signed in 2010 not only grows in the variety of activities funded but also in the number of people benefiting from our support. From entrepreneurs, to international students, recent graduates getting their first work experience or researchers carrying out their studies abroad, the partnership between Santander and Sheffield has reached each and every corner of this campus, and the Santander branch, managed by Oliver Higgins and his team, has been the meeting point for many of them, whether they want to find information about how to apply for the funding or to provide feedback once they have finished their experiences. The result is a strengthened partnership between both institutions where we continue to look for new ways of adding value in each and every renewal of the agreement. We want the agreement to evolve as the higher education sector evolves in the UK and to respond to the needs of the students and academics at Sheffield, ensuring that the projects funded really matter to the University community. Five years is an excellent reason for celebration. However, it is just the beginning of this relationship between Sheffield and Santander, which will no doubt continue to grow and I am sure will be full of achievements and moments that make us all proud to be part of this partnership.
