Student Life Volunteering Program

The Student Life Volunteering Program is a fantastic way to make new friends, build professional networks and gain practical skills and experience.

You can also enjoy benefits such as free accredited training in Food Handling, Victorian Responsible Service of Alcohol, First Aid and more.

Not-for-profit organisations and Swinburne departments can also request volunteers for events and projects through the program. 


The program offers many opportunities, including:

  • Volunteering at major Swinburne events, such as Open Day
  • Volunteering off-campus in the community
  • Experience that can qualify you for the Emerging Leaders Program
