Make a Difference Weeks

Make a Difference Weeks are an opportunity for students and staff to make a positive difference through supporting causes that impact the local community. Throughout the year, we will be running five themed weeks which will include a variety of activities including practical volunteering, fundraising, campaigning and awareness raising. These are one-off activities that don’t require ongoing commitment, giving you the opportunity to gain experience and support your personal development, well-being and sense of community. Make a Difference Weeks are part of the get involved stage of My Student Journey: a framework to complete throughout your degree, offering helpful guidance, CV-enhancing opportunities and skills development, so you can shape your future, as you prepare for life after you graduate.
