The Saints Volunteer programme offers students many opportunities to add value to their University education, enhance their global awareness, develop their leadership skills and improve their teaching and coaching abilities.

In all our projects we use sport, leadership and education as a tool to empower and enrich communities and make a difference to the lives of young people, including nurturing a culture of volunteering in our own students.

Graduate Attributes Portal

The volunteer recognition scheme monitors, acknowledges and rewards the hard work and commitment of volunteers at St Andrews. Students can sign up to the scheme via the dedicated online portal, where they can log their volunteering hours and projects. Students who achieve Platinum, Gold, Silver and Bronze awards can have their volunteering efforts formally recognised on their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) when they graduate.

Volunteer Recognition

Volunteers are integral to the success of Saints Sport and play a valuable role in delivering large elements of the overall student sport experience at St Andrews. We want to celebrate the efforts of our volunteers by spotlighting their significant contributions every month, with the achievements of our most exceptional volunteers recognised through our Volunteer of the Semester award.
