Getting started

  • Register

    Register online for the EDGE Award.

    You can then start to complete activities and we will also start to communicate with you to help you start your EDGE Award Journey.

  • Choose your activities

    Once you register online you can start to view suitable activities. If there are specific EDGE Award activities associated with your subject area you'll see them in the activities section. We also have some suggested activities for those students starting their EDGE Award Journey

    Our Employability Advisor team will be on hand to support you with your EDGE Journey so please get in touch with any questions.

    We recommend you get started on your first activity in first year so you have enough time to complete the award throughout the duration of your degree.

  • Complete and record your activities

    Once you have completed an activity check that it has been recorded.

    Successful activities will appear on your EDGE online record shortly after completion.

    If you have a query then please get in touch with the co-ordinator for your activity or Employability & Careers.

  • Apply for the Award

    Before graduation you will complete a short reflection and application in your final Semester.

    This will be available in Blackboard Learn in the early part of Semester 2.

    If you have any questions about this or any aspect of EDGE, please just get in touch by emailing careers@ulster.ac.uk

  • Get started and take part in activities

    Once you are registered for the Ulster EDGE Award it's important to get started as soon as you can.

    The sooner you get that first activity completed the sooner you will start that journey of building your confidence and skills.
