We have an active student volunteering programme here at Queen Mary, Malta Campus, the benefits of which are being felt by local organisations and charities, the wider communities they serve, and not least, the students themselves.
Organisations benefit from the injection of time and the transferable skills and expertise of our students, many of whom rely on volunteers to operate. Students gain practical hands-on knowledge, invaluable work experience and a boost to mental wellbeing.
