Log Your Hours

Any volunteering you do during your time as a student at RGU can be logged with us, this can lead to you getting a volunteering hour certificate, this is applicable to postgraduate and undergraduate students. If you are a full-time undergraduate student we are able to add your hours to your university HEAR record. By logging your hours, you are able to confirm your volunteering and employers will be able to see what you've done which all full time undergradute students can access via Gradintel, so it is very important to make sure you get credit for your efforts.

To log your hours, please fill out the form below and it will automatically submit your hours to the appropraite staff member:

Please note, if you have more than one volunteering role please fill in a new form for each individual role you have done.

The contact name and email should be for your supervisor or whoever can confirm your hours, for societies you should list the President of the society.

As we need to log all the volunteering in time for the Student Achievement Awards Ball in March each year, we log hours from March to February. The current period for logging hours is from March 2023 to February 29th 2024. 

Any queries connected to volunteering can be directed to volunteering@rguunion.co.uk

The date to log volunteering hours has passed, this is now closed.

Deadline for submitting hours is Sunday 3rd March 2024.

After submitting your hours to RGU Union, you should consider nominating anyone that you volunteer with for an award at the Student Achievement Awards Ball. Nominations are now closed but you can still purchase tickets here.



For those who are aged 25 or younger, you can also sign up to the Saltire Awards, which is a Scottish Government scheme to reward young people for their volunteering. It's separate to our volunteering logging scheme but is well worth signing up to if you are eligible as Saltire Awards are recognised by employers across the country.

RGU offer Beyond The Classroom Pathways (BCP), which recognises the skills, time, effort and value of your volunteering. A BCP certificate will be awarded for activities including volunteering, sports clubs and activities, community engagement and student societies and roles linked to the Student Union such as School Officer.
