Here at Kingston there are plenty of opportunities for you to develop your CV while you study for your degree – whether you're interested in volunteering, setting up a new sports society or working for the University. Plus these are all great ways to meet new friends and have fun at the same time.
This short film made by Kingston University students shows that participating in anything from a sports team to a society will make it easier to make friends and can sometimes even help build your CV:
Remember that the Union of Kingston Students also offers lots of opportunities, including the chance to run as an elected officer, get involved in sports clubs and other societies, and take part in volunteering. To find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org or see them at the Freshers' Fayre.
Want to share your experiences of applying to Kingston and what it's like to study here? If so, you could make a great student ambassador. We employ a team of student ambassadors to share their experiences of Kingston with other potential students, and promote the importance of higher education.
As a student ambassador, you'll have the chance to work on a range of projects within different departments. We aim to enable you to develop both personally and professionally in a supportive and friendly environment (while earning at least £9 per hour!)
If you're interested in becoming a student ambassador, watch out for posters around campus and information on Jobs Central when you arrive at Kingston.
The University employs students to work on particular projects on an internship basis. This allows you to develop a range of transferable skills, such as time management, communication, problem solving and team working – all of which are highly valued by employers. If you are interested, you need to apply for a post and participate in a competitive interview. Opportunities can be found on Jobs Central.
