Student Recruitment Team

Graduate Ambassadors

Every year we also recruit and train a full time team of recent graduates who deliver the majority of our school and college activities. These Graduate Ambassadors develop workshops and presentations based on their own experience at University, and their specialist subject knowledge. To view the range of activities that they offer you can either search our Teachers' Toolkit, or view the online version of our Activities Brochure.

Student Teams

We believe that our current students are the best advocates for higher education, and we employ and train over 200 Student Ambassadors every year to help us inspire students who visit us on campus or benefit from one of our in-school activities. 

We also have a team of enthusiastic and engaging science communicators who make up our Street Science Team. Our Street Scientists deliver a series of STEM related interactive activities for schools and colleges, and also attend festivals and events around the UK to promote science to the public. You can find our Street Science themed activities by searching our Teachers' Toolkit database.
