Volunteering for Students
Volunteering can help build your experience in two ways. If you have limited or no work experience it can be the first step to a paid job. Or you may have lots of experience just not in the field you want to work in.
Volunteering in a related role can help bridge a gap on your CV. Find out more on our volunteering pages.
Work placement modules are available in most departments. Check to see if there is one for your programme. They are an excellent way of gaining experience related to your studies.
