A postgraduate degree is a challenging yet rewarding experience. At Leeds, there are many opportunities to enrich your studies, make the most of your time here and prepare you for a successful career.

Community engagement & volunteering

The School of Law and the University has a range of opportunities for you to get involved with and help the local community. Volunteering your time can be a great way not only to give something back to your local community, but to also broaden your skillset.

The School of Law offers a number of community engagement opportunities which allow you to work pro bono and put your legal knowledge into practice.

Both Leeds University Union (LUU) and Leeds for Life also offer a range of volunteering opportunities – from working with unhoused individuals in the city and undertaking projects abroad – that could boost your CV and take you to new places. Leeds for Life can also help if you want to set up your own voluntary project.

“I have enjoyed my role as Postgraduate Representative within the School, giving me the opportunity to interact more with my fellow Master's students, and raise their concerns and ideas with staff. Last semester I was also a Language Leader, leading a conversational Spanish course for undergraduate students. These experiences have enriched my university experience and developed my personal and social skills.”
