At Swinburne, we offer our students the opportunity to volunteer throughout the university and wider local community. Volunteering your time towards a worthy cause is a great way of showing the leadership skills and passion that employers are looking for in the workforce. 

Leadership

Keen to develop your leadership skills? Swinburne's leadership programs are designed to help build your skills through workshops, events and other opportunities. By getting involved, you’ll meet new people, enhance your employability and get out of your comfort zone – lead the way!
