Want to work with impactful organisations as part of your course? Put social action and real life learning into your curriculum.
Service Learning is putting real world learning (experience on live briefs) and civic engagement (community work) into your course. Learning isn’t just taking notes in lectures, but using that knowledge and applying it in real life. This is what Service Learning does. It works in different ways and we’re looking to work with a wide range of courses and can find the right learning opportunities for your course. See below for some examples of how this works:
*Journalism students working on campaigns for NGOs
*Business students carrying out research for social enterprises
*Programming students building apps for charities
*Civil Engineering students designing public buildings for communities
Kingston Hub are currently working with academics at the University to embed this type of learning into your courses to help you reach your learning objectives in an approach that allows you to gain experience and make a difference.
