Club volunteers

With over 70% of the student body regularly active, St Andrews is one of the leading institutions in the UK for participation in sport and physical activity.

Sports Clubs form an integral part of University life at St Andrews and the vast majority are student led and student-run, with many of our club coaches and match officials coming from within the student body

We seek to empower students to take responsibility for delivering large elements of the overall student sport experience and look to nurture and support a team of over 500 volunteers who are committed to delivering student sport activity within their clubs for more than 4,000 students throughout the academic term.


Volunteer 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 Gold and Platinum awards can have their volunteering efforts formally recognised on their Higher Education Achievement Report (HEAR) when they graduate.
