The MMU Futures Award enables you to gain recognition for all the extra-curricular activity you do, will look great on your CV and will impress employers!
When you attend an MMU Futures activity you will automatically be credited with the relevant points towards the MMU Futures Award. To find out how many points you need and which Careers workshops you need to complete at each level, just click through the tabs below. We have two award options – the standard MMU Futures Award, and the Global MMU Futures Award for those who want to ‘internationalise’ their experience.
To claim points for other activity which you don’t find advertised on these pages, such as SU roles, volunteering or participating in a University project outside your curriculum, you’ll need to complete the activity verification form
Please note that the MMU Futures award is changing. Information on the new scheme will be available on the Careers and Employability website before the start of the new term in September.
Students already participating in the current scheme will be able to transfer to the new award.
