Need advice on NGO work in Glasgow!

Would appreciate advice on part-time jobs in Glasgow, for a mature student with an eye on building her CV more than earning pocket money (though that would be good too!).

I'm about to begin my Masters at the University of Glasgow in September. My student financial situation is quite secure, so I'm not too fussed about looking for work to augment my living allowance (though I won't turn down the pocket money). Because of that, I am thinking that I should be exploring opportunities that's in line with my interests (politics, communications, media) and my working background (international development; international NGO - in programme management/grants administration capacity; journalism), instead of simply looking for a waitressing/tending gig.
Does this sound feasible? I am looking for advice in terms of the sort of civil society/NGO/media organisation in Glasgow, or the UK/EU at large (if I have to or should plan for a summer internship). I'm from Malaysia, and I've been to London, but this would be my first time in Scotland, and I'm quite conscious that a year-long Masters programme is a short time!
