Enrich your learning with      Q-XTRA

We want to support and enable you to leave college with more skills and experiences than just those gained through your studies. To do this, the Q-XTRA programme encourages you to seek out experiences that maintain your health, contribute to your community, develop your employability, and enhance your skills and interests. For everything you do alongside your studies either in or out of college, you can receive credits leading to either Bronze, Silver or Gold Q-XTRA certification.
