The University of Southampton
Health SciencesUndergraduate study


Our Nursing and Midwifery students enjoy a varied range of opportunities to volunteer whilst studying with us.

One opportunity for third year Nursing and Midwifery students is volunteering to be part of our selection days, interviewing and assessing candidates alongside academics and being part of the decision making.

University Open Days, career events at Schools and Colleges and other recruitment events appreciate our students as they effectively market our programmes. Parents, partners and potential students very much appreciate talking to them as much if not more than to the academics. 

Some of our students have volunteered to work as mentors for school children aged from 14 to 16 who are from disadvantaged backgrounds within our local community. These teenagers are usually in the group who are less likely to succeed and our mentors help them realise their potential.

There are opportunities to volunteer to support health projects in other countries.

Volunteering to support and help various societies at the University brings with it a rich social life. NaMSoC (Nursing and Midwifery Society) is one such society and depends on volunteers to organise events and support students as necessary.

All students are encouraged to be a buddy for new first year students at a time when many feel worried or lonely. Students are also encouraged to volunteer as ambassadors for the University.


At Health Sciences we are committed to reaching out to people who are interested in making discoveries in the field of health and social care.
