Community engagement

You can get involved in projects that make a real difference to the lives of people in local communities and abroad. Undergraduate and postgraduate students take part in a range of volunteering activities as part of this programme.

Overseas students who study at the Business School visit primary schools and care homes to talk to children and citizens about their country's culture. Students who take part in these culture sharing programmes benefit from meeting and getting to know students on other courses, increased levels of confidence, and the satisfaction of making a difference in the community.
