End of Year Survey

Help us to help you!

At the end of every year we conduct a survey to find out how your year has been and to understand what you need from us.

We know that this year has been very different to others and there have been numerous challenges to face so that's why this year's survey is more important than ever. As your Students' Union, the results we receive from this survey help us to better understand you, your priorities and your needs.

Whether you're just coming to the end of your first year with us or you're getting ready to graduate - we want to hear from you.

At the end of the survey you'll be given the option to enter our prize draw where you'll be in with a chance of winning one of three £100 vouchers up for grabs.

About Us

Student Led Volunteering is exactly that - volunteering projects and events which are organised and led by students with your lifestyle in mind. They offer a diverse range of one off volunteering opportunities open to all throughout the academic year which take place outside of core study hours on either Wednesday afternoons, weekday evenings or all day at the weekends. Meet like-minded students who share your passion for helping others and making a difference in the local community. With no ongoing commitment you can sign up and attend as many or as few sessions as you like, fitting them into your schedule when it suits you. Meeting on campus, all transport, costs and refreshments during the day/afternoon are provided by the SU. 

The current projects are:

  • Green Team: They aim to get you out of the city, enjoying, exploring and caring for the diverse landscapes of Devon and Cornwall. The focus is on restoration, conservation and management of culturally and environmentally important areas.
  • Animal conservation: They aim to broaden the student experience of practical animal conservation whilst having fun and learning new skills.  
  • Special Olympics: volunteering with Special Olympics helps to make a real positive difference to the projects members, socialise with and engage the members in sporting activities. With no commitment to attend all of the sessions you can sign up depending on your availability.

***These projects are temporarily on hold and volunteer days out will be reintroduced as and when our charity partners are ready to accommodate volunteers again. Student led volunteering will be putting on a range of online volunteering events and some face to face volunteering in small groups. By purchasing a FREE membership you will be the first to know about these events.

***Please ensure you have registered as a volunteer on the UPSU website before attempting to purchase your free membership. You can do this by going to the person icon in the top right hand corner of the page and clicking on 'Volunteer profile'. If you are not yet registered it will take you through the short registration process.
