Find volunteering opportunities

Chevening volunteering events

You’ll find volunteering projects advertised in your monthly Scholargram throughout the year.

Previous years have seen scholars building fences at donkey sanctuaries, helping homeless charities, beach cleaning, planting trees, and much more!


Finding volunteering opportunities outside of Chevening

You may find that your university or students’ union offer volunteering opportunities.

You can also search for opportunities through local charities or the National Council for Voluntary Organisations.

Visit the UK government website for more information on what you can and cannot do on a student visa.

If you are still unsure, please reach out to your university.
