Volunteering is a great way to make a difference to your local community and here at NTSU there are a number of opportunities on offer, from one-off volunteering to running your very own project.
Wondering why you should volunteer? Helping to make a difference, gaining valuable work experience and developing transferable skills like creativity, problem solving and communication are just some of the benefits of giving back.
Below you’ll find more information on exactly how you can get involved.
Student-led projects allow you to create volunteering projects of your very own. Sound like a lot of responsibility? Don’t worry, we’ll give you the funding you need to get started and support you every step of the way. Click here to find out more about how you can start your own project.
These projects allow you to get involved in volunteering without any long-term commitment and can take place on one of NTU’s three campuses or in the local community.
They can take an hour, a few, or a full day depending on the opportunity so are great way to volunteer alongside your studies.
We’ll be updating our one-off projects regularly here so make sure you keep checking back for all the latest opportunities.
Please note: page will only show if we have volunteering opportunities available.
Micro volunteering can be done at any time, from anywhere – even your bed! All you need is the internet.

Don’t forget that we also have a number of Raising and Giving (RAG) activities available for those of you who are interested in raising money for local charities too – they’re another great way to give back and work on your personal development. www.trentstudents.org/rag has more information.
If you are passionate about helping other students as well as developing new skills and experience, then you might be just the volunteer we are looking for.
Our Information and Advice Service (IAS) offers free and confidential advice on everything from money matters to mental health to students at Nottingham Trent University and we have a number of opportunities to volunteer with them.
They include promoting the services they offer to students, running activities and signposting to other services, as well as a buddying programme which helps new students settle into university life.
