Volunteering Event 19 March 2020


This free event a chance for students,  to discover volunteering opportunities in the UK and abroad, and find out about paid roles with local and national organisations. 

We are always pleased to attract a selection of local, national and international organisations to our events which are open to all University of Suffolk students and alumni, as well as members of the public.


We believe that our students have the potential to do great things, the best way to find out if they are right for your organisation, is to meet them.

Although we are not arranging on-campus activity for the next few months, we would like to hear from you if you would like to virtually meet with our students.  

Our volunteering event is an ideal opportunity for organisations to meet our students and graduates, increase awareness of the work you do and promote any opportunities you have available now or in the future.  It is also a great way to meet and network with University of Suffolk staff, course leaders and other organisations. 

If you would like to discuss the Fairs, or other opportunities to reach our students and graduates in greater detail, please contact us via email or on 01473 338833.
