Log Your Hours

Aber SU student volunteers are amazing and we think you deserve recognition for all the time and effort you give up to benefit fellow students, the community or a cause that is important to you. 

The ABER AWARD is our way of celebrating your commitment to volunteering during your time here at Aberystwyth. We have 3 awards (Bronze, Silver and Gold) that you can work towards over the course of the academic year. Each award helps you to keep track of the hours, activities and skills you gain as a volunteer.

Everyone who reaches a milestone award will be invited to our end of year event and you will be presented with a printed certificate of the highest award you achieve. 


You can log your hours from 1st July 2023 to 1st May 2024 for 23-24 Academic year.


How to work towards the Aber Award?


Working towards the Aber Award is easy, just follow these steps:

  • Register as a volunteer
  • Log into the Volunteer Hub
  • Regularly record your hours, activities and skills

You are not restricted to logging hours from one role, so if you do a range of volunteering, then we encourage you to record everything you do! Just make sure to keep your log up to date!


What hours and activities can I log?


Any volunteering you do in Aberystwyth, during the Academic Year (September to May) can be recorded. Before receiving your award, all volunteer hours and skills are verified by a member of SU staff. It’s not just the hours we check, but it’s the skills too. Click on each of the roles to find out more about what activities you can record:
