Get Involved


There are a huge number of benefits to volunteering in sport whilst at University. These include developing your transferrable skills, growing your social networks, helping sustain and develop activity, and, fundamentally, the opportunity to make yourself more employable. As part of the Sports Union's Coaching and Volunteering Academy, this page will provide details of both internal (Sports Union) and external (wider University and local community) volunteer opportunities, which will provide you with the opportunity to take your involvement in sport to the next level.
