Changes to the Stellify Award

Reading Time: < 1 minute

To ensure that students are not disadvantaged following the disruption of many activities due to COVID-19,  we have reduced some of the activities required to complete the Stellify Award for students graduating in 2020.

Ethical Grand Challenges

Students now need to complete any two out of the three Ethical Grand Challenges to achieve “Understanding the Issues that Matter”.

Two of the Ethical Grand Challenges (the Social Justice Challenge and the Workplace Ethics Challenge) are available to complete online.


The total number of community-facing volunteering hours needed to complete “Make a Difference” has been reduced from 40 hours to 25 hours. The deadline for these to be recorded on Volunteer Hub (or in the case of SPORT volunteering on Volunteer Kinetic) remains 31st May.

Step Up and Lead

Students will still be required to complete two leadership roles to achieve “Step Up and Lead”. However, students will get recognition for leadership roles they were undertaking this academic year that weren’t completed but they were on track to complete.

You can find out more about how to achieve the Stellify award and the specific requirements on the Stellify website.
