EDGE Award

UUSU can accredit your EDGE Activities such as: Volunteering with External Organisations, Sports Union Club/Students Union Society Member, Students Union Student Councillor and Students Union Course Rep etc if you have met these requirements i.e. 30hours of Volunteering for an External Organisation. In conjunction with Student Support we are able to support logging hours for Student Support EDGE Activities i.e. Mental Fitness & Mind Your Mood Ambassadors.

In an ideal world – we would say log in to your UUSU Volunteering Profile and log your hours within the Log Hours & Skills tab however the system isn’t fully functioning yet

In the meantime, can you go to EDGE Activity Logbooks to find downloadable copies of the logbooks for UUSU & Student Support EDGE Activities and return to the relevant person by 31 March 2019.

If you have any queries about EDGE - please contact your Campus Careers Team

If you have any queries about Student Support EDGE Activities  - please contact your Campus Student Support Team
