Employability Points


About the EP Scheme

The Employability Points (EP) Scheme rewards students with experience of work for their active involvement in co-curricular activities. In 2020-21, over 9,000 students participated in the EP Scheme, with over 850 rewards being offered by local, national and international employers.

For students:

If you are currently engaging with co-curricular activities, you can claim 'Employability Points' for each activity completed! At the end of the second term, if you have earned sufficient points, you can cash these in for the chance to apply for 'rewards'.

Rewards include paid internships, work experience opportunities, training and vouchers offered by local and national employers.

You can get started by logging your activities on MyFolio, whereas information on EP rewards can be found here.

For businesses:

The Employability Points Scheme is an unique way for you to engage with the University of Kent. The scheme allows you to work with the most engaged students currently studying at Kent by offering experiences of work to be undertaken during the summer period. As an employer, you can offer paid internships, unpaid work experience, training opportunities and vouchers, to name a few.

If you are interested in becoming an EP sponsor, please contact the team.
