The Student Ambassador Programme

The Widening Participation Student Ambassador Scheme is an opportunity for undergraduate students to gain experience working with children and young people in an educational setting. Student Ambassadors play a supporting role across the majority of LSE Widening Participation activities. With training and on-going guidance, Student Ambassadors engage with and facilitate small groups of young people (10-18 year olds), parents and teachers through a number of opportunities including campus tours, Higher Education fairs, on campus WP events and LSE open days.

Key to the work as an ambassador is the ability to act as a role model, providing guidance, motivation and encouragement to the students we work with. Through our events and activities, student ambassadors will help school students gain a better understanding of the opportunities available to them, fain confidence in their own abilities to succeed in education, and gain a better insight into Higher Education and life as a University student, with the aim that young students will feel a greater sense that they will belong at University like the LSE.

The scheme is a flexible, paid scheme, open to first and second year Undergraduate students only.

Feedback from Student Ambassadors:

“The scheme 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”

“It was amazing to meet other Ambassadors and also talk to school students, tell them about LSE and what being at University is like. It was a new and different experience that I thoroughly enjoyed”

“I enjoyed meeting people from all over the world including those who came to the tours. It was fun to meet young people from London and be their first impression to University as well. I am happy to be able to share my experience in LSE to new prospective students who are planning their journey to top world education too. It was great making new friends.”
