University Counselling Service Champions

Would you like to be a volunteer Champion for the University Counselling Service?

If you have experience of the University Counselling Service, in any capacity, you have valuable insight into how we work. You may be well placed to let others know about what is on offer and what to expect. NB you don't necessarily need to have engaged with counselling to apply.

The sort of things you may be involved with as UCS Champion are:

  • Letting students (and possibly staff) know about the University Counselling Service
  • Meeting occasionally with the other student Champions in a small focus-group setting to offer insights in to how the University Counselling Service can improve how it runs

  • Being a contact point for the University Counselling Service to seek your guidance from your student* perspective (we might email you to ask for your thoughts/idea/views)

  • Being the Student Representative at open days and other events where the University Counselling Service may have a stall

It is anticipated that the time involvement would be minimal and on an ad hoc basis to suit you.

As well as supporting fellow students you will also develop useful transferrable skills.

If you’re interested, please email and you will be invited in for a brief discussion about the role.


*There are also opportunities for Staff members to become Champions for the University Counselling Service. Please get in touch.
