The list is endless
Students that participate in any of The Duke of Edinburgh International Award levels really get a lot out of the programme. It’s hard to pin it down to just a few key things, but ask any student who’s been involved and you’ll find out that the first reason to be a part of it is that you’re guaranteed to have a lot of fun, even if you are often pushing yourself to do difficult new things. The challenging factor of the programme is exciting, but should not stop you from trying it out, because in your journey, you’ll get to know your friends better and you’ll share experiences together that will forge friendships of a lifetime. It also looks really impressive on your university application, because it’s a testament to your perseverance and hard work.
