Work

Activities such as sports, socialising, going to the cinema, and even shopping are good distractions that provide a refreshing break. As well as reducing your stress levels, they can help you broaden your experiences, make new friends and, depending on the activity, improve your sense of self-worth and self-esteem.

Volunteering

Volunteering can also bring a different focus to your life. An invaluable way to gain experience, it helps you learn new skills and meet people from all walks of life. All while giving something back to the community. If you're interested in local volunteering opportunities, the City Volunteering project can help you get involved.

Careers advice when you need it

City's Centre for Career and Skills Development offers support and advice to students looking for work. Specialist staffs are available for one to one careers guidance. Or if you already know what you're looking for, our vacancy board includes a wide variety of jobs from part-time positions to full-time graduate roles.

Mentoring

Mentoring is another invaluable way to shift the balance by giving something back. City's Centre for Career Skills and Development runs a Professional Mentoring Scheme that pairs up volunteer mentors from business and the public sector with student mentees. As a mentor, you would receive training to help you offer one to one support to your mentee over a period of six months.

City, University of London is also a member of the National Mentoring Consortium Ethnic Minority Undergraduate Scheme. This programme requires mentees to be of African, Asian or Caribbean background.
