Here at the Volunteering Service we're keen to make volunteering open to everyone at UCL. We realise that postgrads don't always find it easy to get involved - and so we've done out best to take away the barriers.
We've got around 300 opportunities available in London with our partner organisations for UCL students. We know that postgrads are often looking for flexible and time-light volunteering or for roles using their research skills. We've bundled these up in our Postgrad Volunteering Directory, which also links to a wider selection of opportunities.
If you're planning to write your dissertation with a community theme, check out our Community Research Initiative for Students – where we may be able to connect you with community organisations who you can collaborate on with your research.
You can get Graduate School skills training points for community volunteering - up to 1 point per year.
