Community Projects

Community Projects offer a great opportunity to work in multi-disciplinary teams to tackle real-world challenges for local organisations. 

All projects aim to create value for the community , and focus on a wide variety of topics and themes. Projects are open to students from any academic discipline and no previous experience or specific knowledge is needed - just enthusiasm!

You will receive training in project management, project planning, and reflection skills, and work with experts to develop the specific skills needed to tackle your project. You will liaise with the project partners, and learn about key issues in the community and how you can use your knowledge and skills to make a positive difference. 

Get involved

Applications are currently closed. Sign up to our mailing list in Handshake to find out more about our opportunities in semester 1.  

What's involved? 

  • You will work on your project with a small team of 4 - 6 other students. There may be multiple teams per project.
  • The commitment is approximately 6 hours over the day, but varies per project. Please see the details for each project above for more information on this. 
  • You will be supported with training, guidance and skills sessions from Careers and Placements staff and your community partner organisation.
