The Volunteer

Many of our alumni volunteer their time to continue to support the University and other organisations after graduation.

Did you know?

There are many ways for you to stay involved with the University long after your graduation. Find out more here.

Cilla-Snowball-RSCilla Snowball CBE (BA French, 1981) Alumni Leadership Mentor and Group Chairman and Group Chief Executive Officer, AMV BBDO "The bonds and benefits of university life extend throughout one's career. That's why so many alumni want to loop back and support the University by giving their time, wisdom or making a gift to fund development projects for the next generation."

Gareth-Wall-RSGareth Wall (MSc International Development, 2007) Research Officer, Commonwealth Local Government Forum  "My main advice for people looking to do a gap year volunteering with a development non-governmental organisation (NGO) is to contact the local NGO directly. Try to align your skill base and interests with the organisation. This way you are much more likely to be useful and have a positive and constructive time."
