Volunteering is a great way to practise your English, improve your CV and discover more about Manchester and the people who live here.

Excel College is in contact with a variety of volunteer organisations including community groups, youth centres, environment conservation organisations and a homeless charity. All of these organisations have a range of ever-changing volunteer opportunities on offer, some lasting for a few months to a year, some just for a day. You can take a look at current opportunities by visiting the Excel College blog.

If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know when you make your application. We will ask you to complete a form stating why you want to volunteer and what you hope to achieve. Whilst we cannot guarantee a volunteer role will be available for your course dates, we will do our best to find a suitable opportunity that matches your interests and fits around your studies.

All students from the EU can volunteer. Students who need a visa to study in the UK can volunteer as long as their visa allows it.
