Student volunteering

There are lots of different opportunities to get involved in volunteering during your time at University.

The Guild of Students, University departments and the local community are all ways in which you can get involved.

Student-led volunteering

The Guild of Students provides hundreds of student-led volunteering opportunities. Volunteers are really important to the Guild and, without them we would not be able to support our members in the way that we do.

Volunteering for University departments

University departments offer internal volunteering opportunities ranging from mentoring to supporting the research and cultural collections to running a sports club. 

Volunteering in the community

There are hundreds of organisations that you can volunteer for, such as Childline, The National Trust, and the Royal National Institute for the Blind. Opportunities can be perused at

Volunteer recognition and resources

Volunteering is also recognised by the University's employability award, The Birmingham Award.
