LSE Student Ambassadors is a scheme that gives LSE students the opportunity to engage with the London community. The LSE Student Recruitment Office runs a wide range of activities designed to help school pupils raise their awareness, aspirations and achievement levels so that they may consider going on to university and specifically, institutions like LSE.
Student Ambassadors are involved with the following:
Open Days/Open Evenings
Year 12 Politics Conference
Widening Participation Mentoring Scheme
Feedback from previous Student Ambassadors has been very positive:
"The programme has given me the chance to share my knowledge and experiences and at the same time has helped me to develop my communication and interpersonal skills"
"To know that I have succeeded at things like presentations has really helped my confidence"
"It's good to do something for students who perhaps otherwise wouldn't consider going to university"
"It's been a great opportunity to get involved with a side of LSE that you don't experience during everyday student life. It's also a fun chance to meet people"
"It has been very rewarding to help young people and share information about university life and LSE"
Student Ambassadors receive full training and support from the Student Recruitment Office and are given the opportunity to gain accreditation in a number of ways. The scheme is open to first and second year students at the LSE.
Student Ambassador recruitment for 2013-14 has now ended. The next recruitment drive will be begin in Autumn 2014.
