Don’t take our word for it

Here’s what some of the students who participated in our International Volunteering programmes in summer 2017 had to say about their experiences:

“A heart-warming experience which made me grow as a person. Seeing first-hand what the charity does was amazing and I had so much fun and made friends for life."

“I really enjoyed my time volunteering at Little John’s House in Romania. I gained valuable experience leading up to the trip whilst fundraising. My time in Romania flew by, the children and staff were excellent and I left with many life lessons learned and eager to return.”

“The online application was simple to fill out, with room to individualise your application in terms of what experience you already have, and what you would personally like to get out of your volunteering. The funding available from the university was easy to apply for and went a long way in ensuring I could access international volunteering.”
