Return to Teachers Toolkit Search


Graduate Ambassadors are recent graduates of the University. They are able to offer a fresh, realistic and unique insight into university life from first-hand experience.

Graduate Ambassadors offer a wide range of workshops and presentations that cover all your students' needs, from encouraging them to start thinking about HE, right through to providing tips for their transition to university. Please see our Activities for Schools and Colleges for the full range of workshops and presentations offered. All workshops and presentations can be tailored to suit your students and complement your HE preparation programme.

We also have a dedicated team of Graduate Ambassadors based in the three University Faculties:

  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Medical Sciences
  • Science, Agriculture and Engineering 

Their role is to focus on inspring future progression into their particular subject areas.

Please note: it is possible to combine Faculty specific and general activities as part of a Graduate Ambassador visit to your school/college.

All workshops and presentations are free of charge. Workshops and presentations are available to identified target schools/colleges.
