The Psychology, Mental Health or Social Work volunteer work experience placement is designed to give essential practical on-the-ground work-experience to apply to degree related travel and career progression, while giving back to communities affected by HIV/AIDS.

During your stay you’ll be able to apply your research methodologies, gather insights and understand how people’s way of life has developed.

In addition, you will deal with everyday child abuse cases that come in, as well as follow up with closed cases and community outreach programmes, where you’ll be involved as a supporting member of the team and supervised at all times.

This is a great volunteer abroad programme to acquire primary research for a third year dissertation or to simply apply your degree education in communities in need. You can research while volunteering based on your academic interests and dissertation topic.

“When you volunteer you doing something you can’t do at home, you’re actually making a difference and living in a place and a community as opposed to just passing through. It’s something I’d really recommend for psychology students.”
