Volunteers needed for January Welcome Week 2020

Would you enjoy helping new students feel welcome? Fancy earning some Employability Points along the way?

International Partnerships are looking for student volunteers to assist with three key parts of welcoming our new international student arrivals in January 2020.

  1. Meet & Greet Volunteer, Tuesday 7 January: You will be based on campus ready to welcome new arrivals and assist them to their accommodation. Shifts will be allocated in advance of the day.
  2. Networking Volunteer, Wednesday 8 January 09.00 – 13.00: Meet and spend time welcoming our new International students to the UK over refreshments & activities.
  3. Walking Tour Guide, Thursday 9 January 13.30 – flexible end: Love Canterbury? Why not lead a ‘walking tour’ from Eliot into the city centre. Point out key locations & routes, as well as your top tips of where to eat, drink, and shop in town. A fun way to earn Employability points and show new International students that even a rainy day in January can be fun! #BritishWeather

If you are interested in any of the above opportunities, please email with your selected event, full name, student email address and mobile phone number.

Note: We will need your mobile phone number in case we need to contact you during the day regarding the event. This will not be shared with any other students without your permission.

We look forward to hearing from you.
