We want you to make the most out of your time at AUB by getting involved in as much as you can while you’re here. That’s why we’ve come up with Level Up.
Through the not-so-subtle use of gaming metaphors, we’ll show you that there’s loads of benefits to trying new stuff and getting involved in student-led activities. Whether it’s trying a new society or giving up some of your time to volunteer, you’ll be able to develop your skills, build your character and get a whole wealth of experience.
(And if character development wasn’t enough motivation for you, we’ve also got a series of award categories to recognise your contributions and growth over the year.)
Sometimes you might not realise all of the amazing (read: employable) skills you're developing while doing stuff at uni that you enjoy. We want you to sit up and take note of everything you've accomplished (and believe us, it's more than you think) and shout about it too.
We've made things a little easier by compliling a list of key skills that will benefit you personally, with the added bonus of getting potential employers all hot under the collar.
Led a society? That requires time management, organisational skills, and communication skills. Written or designed a piece for BUMF? That means you've developed communication skills and attention to detail. Course rep? Interpersonal skills and problem solving. And that's just a small sample!
See those tabs on the left? Just work through those to get yourself set up. If you can't see them then make sure you're logged in.
Start by creating a profile, where you can tailor your preferences and availability, and then start browsing the volunteering opportunities available. You can then log your hours (both union-related and community volunteering), review your skills and check out upcoming training courses.
Make sure you read our volunteer agreement so you know what is expected of you before you start. It all should be pretty straightforward to work through but we've made a handy guide to help you. Do contact us (either email firstname.lastname@example.org or pop into the office) if you need a hand.
