Get your summer recognised

An overview of two ways to get recognition for your summer activities.

As the summer approaches, it's time to look into making the most of it.  You might want to develop new skills, bolster your learning and boost your CV.  The two options below can help you make the most of any experiences you wish to undertake.  If you don't have anything lined up yet for the summer, scroll to the bottom of this page - we've pulled together some resources to support you with this.

Both options provide recognition from the University for involvement in activities over the summer.  The Edinburgh Award recognises students doing specific activities and staff support them through the Award process whereas SLICCs can recognise any student activity and is a much more self-directed process. We've outlined some general information including the main differences between the two opportunities.  


PLEASE NOTE:  You cannot apply to do an Edinburgh Award and a SLICC at the same time for the same experience.
