Welcome to the 'extra-curricular' home page for Lancaster Environment Centre students where you can find pointers towards a number of extra-curricular opportunities open to you, both science and non-science related.
Enhance your CV
Extra-curricular activities can enhance your cv whether or not they are directly related to your degree or intended career path.
Choose something that interests and inspires you. Career-focussed experience such as summer internships (placements), or conservation volunteering has an obvious benefit, but most activities - sports, arts etc. - will give you transferable skills that employers are looking for, for example evidence of initiative, leadership, teamwork etc.

The Lancaster Award
This is an award that recognises students' extra-curricular achievements and can be taken alongside the degree programme. Many of our students are already involved in lots of extra-curricular activities, and the award aims to encourage students to complete such activities and be recognised for their accomplishments.
To achieve the Award students are required to undertake activities in four areas:
- Employability/career development
- Campus, community and social development
- Work experience
- Additional skills
See www.lancs.ac.uk/careers/award for details.
