We have received an official endorsement from UCAS
, the British admission service for students applying to university. Mary Curnock Cook, UCAS Chief Executive
“Many universities recognise that volunteering programmes provide participants with valuable skills and experiences that will help the, succeed in higher education. UCAS encourages students to include information about volunteering activities in their personal statements. We include specific reference to Project Trust and the Foundation Year in Global Volunteering and Citizenship in our guidance.”
Volunteers applying to universities have been using the certificate in their applications, talking about the skills gained through the programme in their personal statements.
