Doing extra activities while studying?

If you’re doing extra activities while you’re studying – you might be an SVA event volunteer, a peer note-taker or a class rep – you can sign up to the Co-curricular Record (CCR) and get recognition for your contribution.

CCR captures the experience and skills you gain from your co-curricular activities and highlights these to potential employers. For example you might have developed great communication skills as a class rep, or you might have strong leadership skills as a result of being a UC sports referee.  

CCR gives you:

  • a validated record to support internship, scholarship and job applications
  • recognition for the activities you’re involved in outside of your studies
  • an employability edge and a boost to your CV.

There are heaps of activities you can get recognition for on your CCR. Check out the full list     

If you’re already participating in an activity, why not sign up to CCR? If you’re involved in an activity that isn’t on the list, contact UC Careers to discuss your options.
