Become a volunteer

Volunteering is a great way for you to get real-world experience, build skills, and boost your chances of getting a job. Volunteering is accessible and can fit into your schedule, and you don't always need specific skills - just a positive attitude. Our Centre for Volunteering and Community Leadership (CVCL) can help you get volunteering experience during your studies.
