The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is the world’s leading youth achievement award, bringing together practical experiences and life skills to equip young people for life. Since it was founded in 1956 by His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh (husband to Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom), over eight million young people have participated in the Award in over 140 countries and territories. Schools, colleges, universities, employers, social clubs, youth organisations such as the Scouts, Girl Scouts and Girl Guides, young offenders institutions, religious organisations, sports clubs and more all run the Award.

SUIS Pudong Campus is proud to offer the Award to young people aged 14 and above. This year we have 24 pupils learning and developing skills in activities such as DJing, 3D Painting and pottery; participating physically in recreations including Tae Kwon Do and Swimming; and offering services such as assisting at animal sanctuaries or organising a baked goods sale for charity.
