Abstract
This paper is based on a small study of UCL student volunteers doing placements through the Volunteering Services Unit (VSU) in 2016. The research aimed to identify the extent to which UCL students who engage in volunteering activities through UCL see a connection between their experience and UCL’s mission of equipping graduates to be ‘global citizens’. We were interested in how students understand the concept of global citizenship, how aware there were of this agenda at UCL, and to what extent their understandings aligned with UCL goals. We were also keen to explore whether students made links between volunteering and global citizenship, as well as how their volunteering and ideas about global citizenship related to their degree.
