University College London Union

The VSU and Global Citizenship

Volunteering has an important part to play in UCL’s Global Citizenship agenda. Our aim at the VSU is to provide stimulating activities where both the student and wider society are enriched. The feedback from students show that, by volunteering, UCL students learn more about London’s diverse communities, develop new skills, and increase their employability. We also help students make the most of the experience by offering the UCL Volunteering Personal Development Award and Volunteering and your CV sessions.

Our Innovations Programme – where students develop and run their own community services – gives volunteers the chance to take on leadership roles.

The VSU also runs the Voluntary Sector strand of the Global Citizenship Programme for students.
