Volunteering can provide an enhanced student experience which can translate directly into improved employability and student satisfaction. It also can have a range of positive impacts on students’ skills, personal development and employability as well as developing their community awareness and integration into communities outside the university. Volunteering can be an excellent way for students to further their studies and enhance their career prospects.
