Volunteering is a great way to enhance your University experience, enabling you to make friends, become part of the local community and develop new skills which will look great on your CV.
A wide range of volunteering opportunities are available to you, including volunteering with local, national and international charities and not-for-profit organisation; volunteering with children and young people; supporting adults; volunteering in arts and culture and environmental volunteering.
For undergraduate students, this activity counts towards the Stellify Award. To complete the ‘Make a Difference’ section of the Stellify Award you need to complete and record 25 hours of community volunteering.
