Have you heard about BrookesEDGE? It’s your chance to make the most of your time whilst at Oxford Brookes and to stand out from the crowd when you graduate.

BrookesEDGE is an extra-curricular scheme run in partnership between Brookes Union and Brookes. It enables you to sign up for a whole host of activities, either related to your course, or to Brookes Union roles and societies or to other schemes such as the Global Buddies scheme or the study abroad experience.

Joining activities will often mean you can meet and work with students from across the University helping you to make new friend and maybe build social networks that you will carry with you after you graduate.

BrookesEDGE is also a recognition scheme. So, you will receive a certificate upon completion that you can add to your CV, your LinkedIn profile and use as part of any job application process. You can also apply for BrookesEDGE+ which is accredited by the Institute of Leadership and Management.

To complete the BrookesEDGE scheme you just need to complete six entries reflecting on your experiences and learning aligned against the six EDGE attributes, which are recognised and valued by employers. Your certificate will detail which attributes you have boosted while at Brookes, so you can tailor the scheme to meet you career ambitions.

Full details can be found on the BrookesEDGE webpages and you can contact the BrookesEDGE team at any time with your queries.

Make the most of your time at Brookes and stand out from the crowd.
