Whether you’re doing it to solve a community problem, advance a worthy cause or to develop as a person, volunteering offers many benefits in return for the gift of your time and expertise.

We strongly believe in the importance of volunteering. So do employers and universities, who tell us that students who can demonstrate skills development beyond their subject and contribution to community life are proven to have a better chance of success.

We want to help you get involved in volunteering opportunities, and will provide you with a number of channels to do so, whether it’s through student voice, sport and recreation or our College open events.

We also run the Duke of Edinburgh award at Gold Level and welcome those new to the award as well as those that have already completed their Bronze or Silver award.
