We are the UC Chapter of a global Honours Society that recognises academic achievement. Each year we invite the top 15% of students to be members of the Golden Key International Society, which unlocks benefits such as scholarships and conferences.
As a UC club we offer opportunities to engage in the areas of academics, service and leadership, such as our Primary School Mentoring and Tutoring programmes. Being involved in these activities provides recognition on your Co-Curricular Record (CCR). These are open to anybody at UC - so sign up and get involved!
Consider joining if...
You need to pad out your CV with volunteer work or just want help winding down during the academic year. You’ll certainly get a lot out of the club with the numerous events, scholarships and travel grants available! Like us on Facebook to see what’s happening throughout the year.
Primary School Mentoring Programme: We match our UC mentors with local primary school students where they collaborate on a project before presenting it to the community. This programme is a huge success each year and we’re looking to grow it further in 2017. Runs during Semester 1. CCR recognition available for mentors.
Academic and Skills Tutoring: Throughout the year we run tutoring for undergraduate students. We pair them up with student volunteers through email, where the volunteers help with either exam preparation or developing their academic skills. CCR recognition available for tutors.
Youth Forum: A one-day workshop for high school students to hear from speakers and engage in a dialogue on a particular theme.
Scholarship Evening: Unlock those elusive Golden Key Scholarships. Available only for invited Golden Key members who have paid the Society fee.
New Members Reception: The highlight of our year! Let us wow you with our reception for all our new invited members.
