Our students in the community
Public, private and voluntary businesses across all sectors can benefit from the involvement of enthusiastic students keen to learn new skills, many of whom are studying courses relevant to those of local businesses such as computing, business, social science and media production.
Community Development and Participation module
Many of our students undertake voluntary work as part of their accredited course curriculum by selecting the Community Participation and Development module. Projects developed as part of this module add value to their degree through both personal development and academic learning. Read more about this module.
Some students also decide to volunteer purely through personal choice. Our award winning volunteering scheme, Active Student, gives local businesses and community groups the opportunity to benefit from motivated students looking to gain work experience and skills from voluntary work.
