Welcome to ARU Students' Union Volunteer Centre
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 and our partnered organisations. Once your organisation and opportunities have been approved we will:
- Promote your opportunities to our student body.
- Meet with student applicants to discuss your opportunities.
- 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.
