About sports volunteering

The sports team at Middlesex University have a variety of volunteering opportunities available for you to get involved in. Whether it be helping out at our Holiday Kids Camps during school holidays or helping out at larger events like the London Marathon.

We can help you become a qualified sports coach and even arrange volunteering opportunities for you. Sports coaching is a great way to learn new skills, and many students gain paid employment whilst studying at University through starting out as a volunteer sports coach. Our Coach Education programme can provide you with the opportunity to undertake a coaching course for free and then arrange a placement for you to practice your newfound skills.

If you like travel and really want to put your coaching skills to the test you may want to consider our overseas volunteering opportunities to Gambia, China and other destinations with our Wellbeing Foundation.

Volunteer abroad

The Wellbeing Foundation at Middlesex University provides International placement and volunteering opportunities. Very often the challenge and excitement of an overseas trip can bring out the best in our students. Previous students have enjoyed participating in trips to overseas countries including, Sport Gambia, coaching and teaching in China, and development trips to Mauritius.

There are plans to undertake another trip to Mauritius at the end of May / early June 2020.  Applications will need to be received by 30 November 2019.
