PARTNER WITH US: UNIVERSITIES

 

 

Keen to find out more about working with Student Hubs at your university? Read about our range of partnership options and their benefits.

 

 

 

 

Start a Hub

 

Partner with us to deliver social action programmes at your university.

Our key activities include Volunteering, Skilled Placements and Project Incubation.

 

Great for Universities

Student experience

A Hub improves students’ experience of university. Students engage with the world beyond the university through experiential learning. Building communities of likeminded individuals makes them more likely to stay at university and excel upon graduation.

Community benefit

Investing in a Hub helps universities to realise their civic role in the local community. Institutions demonstrate leadership locally, contributing to the perception of the university and its students as positive agents for change.

Opportunities for all

Our activities are tailored to ensure that they are accessible to all students, regardless of income background, race, disability or other circumstances. We support students who have never previously had the opportunity to take part in social action.

 

Great for students

Skill up

Our impact-driven social action programmes enable students to gain experience and professional skills that enhance their employability. Leadership, teamwork and confidence are just some of the student outcomes we measure.

Make a difference

All of our programmes are designed to benefit both local communities and the students involved. Students can take part in a range of activities that support groups in need and help to tackle social and environmental challenges.

Access a network

Through our network, students have access to a large, diverse peer group full of people who want to create positive social change. Students also benefit from innovative training and an experienced staff team.

Partner on a Programme

 

Student Hubs also partners with universities on bespoke one-off programmes, working remotely to add value to their existing offering.

In 2017-18, we are looking for university partners for our Internship Scheme. We place students in 7 week internships with charities and social enterprises, supporting them to gain valuable workplace experience tackling social challenges.

Working with Student Hubs has enabled us to offer a wide range of skills sessions to students who have given us positive feedback about how much they take from the sessions into future employment and careers.”Samuel Murphy, Birmingham Business School
