Sunderland Professional Award

The Sunderland Professional Award (SuPA) ) is a three-tiered award that recognises and rewards you for the skills and experience that you gain through participation in activities outside the lecture theatre.

Developed in partnership with employers, SuPA will enhance your future employment prospects by encouraging you to undertake extra-curricular activities and acquire new skills and experiences. This includes involvement in work experience and volunteering opportunities, societies and clubs, and employer events.

Bronze SuPA is ideal for first year students who want to identify their skills and start getting involved in activities and work towards the silver and gold awards.

SuPA Bronze Award

Silver SuPA is perfect for mid-degree students who have started to take on active roles in activities, gain relevant experience and develop graduate skills.

SuPA Silver Award

Gold SuPA is ideal for final year students who have gained lots of experience and developed strong graduate skills with a strong sense of self-awareness and career plan.

SuPA Gold Award


University life is about much more than your degree and there are so many opportunities to develop your skills. If you are looking for a genuine way to stand out from the crowd the Sunderland Professional Award will certainly enhance your CV.
