Within the advice(su) we are committed to having students at the heart of what we do, not only as those who we support but within the way we run.
We are looking for a diverse range of students from across UEA; undergraduates, postgraduates, international students, bilingual students, part-time students and mature students to volunteer with us.
This is a great opportunity for you to; support others, gain experience, make new friends, enhance your CV, earn credit for the UEA award and help make the experience of students at UEA truly wonderful.
what will you be doing?
Throughout the academic year, there are a number of exciting opportunities for you to volunteer with advice(su) and help other students.
Starting with Registration Weekend (22nd-23rd September) & Freshers we will be running events and activities welcoming new students and helping them settle in to live at UEA.
don’t drop out drop in sessions – a space for students to come and chat to someone who is going to be non-judgemental, impartial, not tell them what to do and above all just listen. As a volunteer, you’ll be given some great training to support these students and signpost to the relevant services as appropriate.
ready to rent and housing events – renting for the first time can be a scary thing. As a volunteer, you’ll be given all the tools you need to help this process be far less daunting. You’ll help facilitate housing socials – a chance for students to meet others looking for housing, be trained to deliver ready to rent sessions providing students with hints, tips and what to look out for when renting a property.
provide awareness – helping promote advice(su) to the student body so whenever someone has an issue relating to their time at UEA they know where to turn.
and much, much more….
