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. We have 3 awards that you can work towards over the course of each academic year; all you need to do is log your hours and identify the skills you’ve gained as a result of volunteering.

Each award is fantastic way of evidencing your achievement and can help you stand out from the crowd when thinking about your next steps! Furthermore, anyone that works towards the Aber Award will have the opportunity to a attend skills session to help you reflect on how your volunteering skills and experiences can boost your employability.


This year, volunteering hours will be counted from Monday 17th September 2018 to Sunday 12th May 2019.

To effectively work towards the award, remember to log your hours and skills on a regular basis throughout the academic year. 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!

Before gaining your award, all volunteer hours and skills will be signed off by a member of staff. Once you have reached a milestone you will receive an email confirming your achievement. You can then collect your certificate(s) during SU Celebrates Week, Graduation Week or Freshers Week!

If you have any questions or want further information about the Aber Award, then you can check out the [FAQ page] or email alg51@aber.ac.uk 

Volunteer Hub - Logging Your Hours

You must be registered as a volunteer to log your hours. This happens during registration, where you’ll create a username and password to give you sign in access to the volunteer hub. Remember to frequently log your skills and hours!
