Advice from UPSU
We hope university will be one of the best experiences of your life! But, we also know it has its ups and downs, and it can be tough. In case you do have any issues, the Union’s Advice Service is here to help.
Benefit the Community
Whether you want to volunteer regularly, take part in a nationwide campaign or gain some real world work experience there are opportunities within the community through the Union and University. Increasingly employers are looking beyond your degree to what real world experience you have and the world of volunteering opportunities available at the University are guaranteed to open doors.
The University’s Careers and Employability Service volunteering team actively works with 140 local and national charities and non-for-profit organisations. They help with volunteering searches and applications, whether you are looking for experience that links to your course, career aspirations or addressing skills gaps in your CV.
Over the last 5 years students have raised over £1,000,000 for local and national causes. Whether you are holding a bake sale or trekking through Peru the money you raise benefits those in need and we're really proud of the amazing work our students do.
The University of Portsmouth Students’ Union has a vision of creating a positive impact with every Portsmouth student during their time at University.
