The ARU Students’ Union Volunteer Centre is a service that provides and promotes voluntary opportunities for students and staff at Anglia Ruskin University. As a service, we can promote your volunteering opportunities to our students, matching the skills you need with students who have them.

The students at Anglia Ruskin University study a variety of different courses from Nursing to Computer Gaming Technology, from Sports Coaching to Law. The courses attract students who have wide ranging and specific skills who could benefit your organisation in a variety of ways.

ARU Students’ Union Volunteer Centre are dedicated to providing the best service for our students. Once your organisation and opportunities have been approved we will:

  1. Promote your opportunities to our student body.
  2. Meet with student applicants to discuss your opportunities.
  3. Send you an email to confirm the students application.

Upon receiving a student application we would expect your organisation to contact the student and take them through your normal application process.


Register Your Organisation

Organisations who are a local or national charity, voluntary or not-for-profit organisation are welcome to register with us and upload volunteering opportunities to our database to promote to our student body. All registrations are subject to our Service Level Agreement (see below) and your registration and opportunities are approved at the discretion of our Volunteer Coordinators and may be declined if they do not meet the terms in our Service Level Agreement or if they are too similar to our existing opportunities.
