Q. What's the first step in running a Give it a Go?
A. You need to register your session by clicking the 'Submit your GIAG session' button at www.cardiffstudents.com/GiveitaGo. There's an online form to quickly fill in which gets sent to the GIAG team.

A. We don't mind who takes responsibility for registering the session. Usually the President of the committee registers the session, or delegates the task to the most appropriate person, e.g. a Captain or Secretary.
Q. What is the deadline for submitting our Give it a Go session?
A. The deadline for submission to the term one printed publicity is 24th July. Registering a GIAG session after this point will mean that your session can be promoted online, but not in the 12,000 printed GIAG booklets.
