Duke of Edinburgh

Dulwich College Suzhou is proud to be an Independent Award Centre for the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.

The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award, operating in over 140 countries and territories around the globe. The names of individual operating authorities often differ from nation to nation, but the Award and its unique reputation with employers, policy makers and leaders in society remain unchanged and consistent.

To date, over 8 million young people have started their Award and begun their journey to a brighter future.

The Award is available to all young people aged 14 to 24. It is voluntary, non-competitive, enjoyable and balanced, and requires sustained effort over time. The Award encourages young people to design their own programme of activities, set their own goals and challenge themselves to achieve their aims.
