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 and/or the environment.
The ABER AWARD is our way of celebrating your commitment to volunteering during your time here at Aberystwyth. We have 3 awards that you can work towards over the course of each academic year.
This year, volunteering hours will be counted from Monday 14th September 2020 to Monday 3rd May 2021.

It’s the understanding of how you develop and apply those all-important employability skills that will help strengthen your CV and prepare you for your next steps!
In addition, if you work towards the award, you will be invited to careers based skills sessions, and you will also receive a termly email to update you on your progress.
Everyone who reaches a milestone award will recieve a certificate which presented to you at the end of the Academic Year. You can watch last year's Award Presentations HERE.
