NCS Programme Breakdown


First up, it’s time to challenge yourself! Your week will be packed with exhilarating activities that’ll leave you feeling unstoppable! From Kayaking to rock climbing to high ropes, with support from your team you’ll do things you never thought possible. Staying away from home for 4 nights, you’ll make friendships and memories forever.



After the weekend at home, you’ll spend this week in university accommodation, experiencing what it’s like to live independently (including cooking and cleaning for yourself!). This week will develop skills such as public speaking, budgeting, leadership and communication. This is a great week to boost your CV and UCAS applications along with using your skills to nail those job interviews.



This is your time to make an impact in the community! You and your team will use all of your skills to create and deliver a social action project about something you’re passionate about. Plan, fundraise and make a real difference!



It’s time to celebrate in style. You’ll enjoy a well-earned reward for doing something incredible in your community. Your efforts and achievements will be recognised and you’ll receive your NCS certificate to take with you to job interviews. What’s more, as an NCS graduate you’ll access exclusive opportunities to allow you to continue to enhance your CV.
