What will you lead in?
We know that our students have a lot on their plates. Alongside studying, university is also about developing self-knowledge by gaining new experiences, meeting new people and uncovering skills you never knew you had.
One easy way of getting there is via volunteering. At LUU, we have lots of voluntary opportunities to help enhance your skills and boost your CV. Most employers recognise the skills that can be gained through voluntary work experience – from organising an event, to carrying out interviews and surveys or even interacting with customers on a daily basis. Stand out from the crowd and do good things during your time at Leeds.
