Volunteering Hours Log​

We think it's really important that students receive recognition for the volunteering they do – whether that's for the Student Union or in the community for a local charity – so we've set up SurreyVolunteering.com for you to log the amount of time you've spent helping others.

What counts as volunteering?

Volunteering roles are split broadly into anything internal i.e. for the Union and anything external. Here are examples of Union roles that will count towards your Volunteering Award:

Freshers/Super Angel

Part time Zone member

Sport Relief team

Sports Club committee member

Society committee member

Course Rep

Community Rep

*Internal roles will be verified by a relevant member of Union staff


Here are some examples of external volunteering opportunities that would count towards your Award:

Volunteering for a charity or not for profit organisation

Volunteering abroad for a charity or not for profit organisation

Mentoring/ unpaid tutoring

*External roles will be verified by your line manager at the organisation you volunteer at


There are some exclusions:

  • any volunteering that is a compulsory part of your degree would not count towards a Volunteering Award because we feel that volunteering should never be 'compulsory'. However if you remain volunteering at an organisation past the minimum requirements for your degree, we would be able to count these extra hours towards an Award.

  • Unpaid work experience/internships – unless with a charity or not for profit organisation

  • Society and Sports Club committee members – weekly training, matches, or socials you attend do not count as volunteering – it must be time you spend on club/society administration, planning, running events
