Log Your Hours

Any volunteering you do during your time as a student at RGU can be logged with us and we'll add it to your university record. By logging your hours, you are able to confirm your volunteering and employers will be able to see what you've done, 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 Volunteering Co-ordinator.

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(Presidents should list either the VP or Euan Walker. If your project is based at RGU (such as society work, student buddy, class rep etc), put RGU as the organisation.

As we need to log all the volunteering in time for the Student Achievement Awards in April each year, we log hours from March to February. The current period for logging hours is from March 2020 to February 2021.

Any queries connected to volunteering can be directed to the Volunteering Team at the Union on Union Way (under RGU Sport) or by email to volunteering@rguunion.co.uk

Also, 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.

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. All of the details on this years Ball can be found HERE
