Applications to be a UCSA Help Volunteer in 2020 are open!

  • Stand out as a graduate,
  • Get training in client interviewing, and
  • Gain experience interviewing people with advocacy issues.

We’re looking for senior Law and Psychology students to join our team. As a Help Volunteer, you’ll be the first point of contact for students coming in to see the Advocacy and Welfare team with an issue. It’s an incredibly rewarding role, which allows you to help your fellow students, while gaining valuable training and experience.

Successful applicants are trained in the art of client interviewing, and perform the initial interview when a student first comes in to see the Advocacy and Welfare team. They then deliver the relevant information from the student to the Student Advocate and Advocacy and Welfare Manager, and may also be subsequently involved in the provision of advice back to the student, or the implementation of a UCSA welfare service.

Applicants to be a UCSA Help Volunteer must be:

  • Senior Law or Psychology students at UC, in third year or higher of study in 2020;
  • Of good standing in both character and academic ability;
  • Able to attend compulsory training in February 2020, details TBC;
  • Able to dedicate at least two hours per week during term time to UCSA Help; and
  • Able to commit to at least one academic year as a UCSA Help Volunteer.
