Volunteering

Do you want to do international volunteer work?

We offer you a personalised service with the international volunteering work that interests you the most!

Do you want to do international volunteer work?

Here at the UdG we will help you find the voluntary work best suited to your needs!

International Volunteering offers you the possibility of living a formative and enriching experience abroad, allowing you to get to know other countries, adapt to other cultures and grow at both professional and personal level. 

The aim is to attract UdG students to together build a more integrating society, supporting vulnerable people and meeting social challenges to develop solidarity and promote active citizenship and a mutual understanding among young people.

"How long does volunteering last"? What options are available? "Am I on my own during my voluntary work"?.

If you have such queries, it's normal! For this reason, the UdG provides tailored support to examine your personal and professional aims and propose the most suitable options and resources.

Our volunteering programmes are free and cover travel, accommodation and living expenses.
What's more,
with international volunteering you can also get academic recognition credits!

How can I do international volunteer work?

Would you like to know what the possibilities available to you are? Would you like to have an international experience but don’t know where to start? 

Email us at voluntariat.internacional@udg.edu specifying:

  • Name and surnames
  • Telephone number
  • CV (if you have one)

We will get in touch with you to arrange a consultation (in person or online) to analyse the volunteering options available.

Would you like to obtain academic recognition credits with the International Volunteering Service? This is how it works!

The following credits will be awarded for taking part in international volunteering stays:

  • A stay of 2 weeks to a month is equivalent to 2 academic recognition credits.
  • A stay of 1 to 3 months is equivalent to 4 academic recognition credits.
  • A stay of more than 3 months is equivalent to 6 academic recognition credits.

However, to give effect to the credits, you will need to submit a report detailing the activities carried out within a month after finishing the voluntary work. You will also be required to produce a certificate from the organisation, stating the project and hours carried out.
