The Royal Holloway Passport Award is our unique Employability award and every student is automatically enrolled at the start of their studies. It is a structured way to record the activities you undertake to improve your employability and skills, as well as develop ways of showcasing them to future employers, giving you a competitive edge on the job market.

There are over 280 activities in more than 30 areas which enable you to earn points. In addition, our Passport Challenges give you the opportunity to earn extra points by developing your skills online.  Find out more by checking out the Passport Challenges page.

What our graduates say

"Perhaps the most exciting part was the free certificate I received in the post from WestLaw a few weeks after completing the challenge. It really made me feel like I'd achieved something special and, of course, I've added it to my LinkedIn profile and CV."
BA English, 2017

"The Passport Award is a great way to stand out from the crowd to employers."
