Student Volunteering

We believe that students who are active in their local community, those who volunteer in Dublin, Ireland and even abroad should be supported and rewarded.

Students who volunteer are happier, have more fun during their time in college, are more engaged and make the best graduates, employees and citizens.

As a TU Dublin student, you can register for an account at (link?) and get active on campus, in your community and around the world. You’ll gain experience in services and roles that will benefit others, and you’ll also benefit hugely yourself by:

  • expanding your social network
  • demonstrating that you’re an active citizen
  • developing your leadership skills
  • enhancing  your employability
  • practising team-work

You can register on – a one-stop-shop portal connecting students with volunteering opportunities – and get active on campus, in your community or around the world.

National Student Engagement Programme (NStEP)

The National Student Engagement Programme (NStEP) was launched by the Higher Education Authority, Quality and Qualifications Ireland, and the Union of Students in Ireland. It has two main focuses: the National Student Training Programme and the Development of Institutional Capacity.

The National Student Training Programme works with institutions to develop materials, processes, and supports to deliver a student representative training programme at a national level. The Development of Institutional Capacity provides institutions with the resources to assess their current programmes and ways to improve.
