    You wouldn't really need it to apply for those subjects so just do whatever volunteering you'd like to do really.

    Do you have a museum or national heritage site nearby? Both usually look out for volunteers. My friends recently volunteered on a research project for Matlock Bath Mining Museum, gathering information and helping to put up a display.

    For English, I volunteered in school to hear year 7 readers, but there is the possibility of going to hear readers at a primary school if you have free periods in the afternoon. The school would probably support you in this since it's for educational reasons.

    As mentioned above you are not obligated to do volunteer work for these courses, but it will look good on your personal statement!

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
