Students volunteer in their own time, outside of their studies, to support charities, community groups and other not-for-profit organisations. Both universities have professional volunteering services, which help to broker and promote volunteering opportunities to all students. Volunteers can provide longer-term regular support, or act as a short-term ‘task force’ team to achieve a specific goal.
University of Bristol
At University of Bristol, student volunteering is supported by the Students’ Union. Volunteering opportunities can be uploaded online or you can talk to the team about targeting specific students or co-hosting a student volunteer action day: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note: the universities do not advertise unpaid internships or part-time work. If either university believes an opportunity requires a student to be held accountable and should be paid, they have the right to refuse advertising that opportunity and can direct organisations to the funding available for internships.
