Student Projects

If you are looking to get even more involved with SUBU Volunteering then one of our student-led projects might be up your street.

Each project has two dedicated Student Leaders who set the project aims and organise the students that are involved. The projects are varied but they all have long term goals and will warmly welcome any student regardless of experience to join the team.

With support and training provided by SUBU these projects are a way for students to develop themselves, enhance their CV’s and increase their confidence. Every year we recruit new leaders to take charge and develop the projects. If this sounds like something you would be interested in then get involved here!
