  • 4. The plan
    All about Student Ambassadors
    How it actually works
    Working with young people
    Representing your institution
  • 5. So what are Student Ambassadors?
    A team of current students chosen to represent the University– nearly 200 of you!
    They are employed by the Widening Participation Unit but also work for Student Recruitment and other departments within the university.
    They all have basic training and many of them become experts for particular projects.
  • 6. What is widening participation?
    “Widening Participation is about encouraging and
    supporting those people from groups currently
    under represented in Higher Education, who have
    the potential to make a positive contribution to the life of St. George's, and the NHS workforce.”
  • 7. Which means?
    There are lots of people out there who could be great students and great healthcare professionals who don’t apply to university. There are lots of reasons for this including:
    They don’t know about it or don’t know how to get there
    They come from underachieving schools or neighbourhoods
    They don’t receive the right support
    They think that they won’t fit in
    They lack confidence
    They don’t have the right information
    Widening Participation activities help to spread the word about University and Healthcare careers to give these people the confidence, the skills and the right information to help them to achieve their potential.
