Probably the best way for you and your students to get a sense of what it's like to study at the University of Reading is to meet some of our current undergraduates and hear first-hand about their experiences. Apart from being excellent role models they are a mine of information, advice and practical tips on how to survive – and make the most of – university.
Drawn from across the spectrum of subject areas, our Ambassadors are involved in everything from Open Days and Campus Tours to in-coming school visits and handling prospective student visitors. Off campus they attend UCAS fairs, participate in schools' and colleges' own HE fairs and give presentations ranging from choosing university to student life and managing on a budget etc. Some of them also act as mentors, supporting prospective students on our longer term progression and transition programmes.
If you would like them to come to your school or college, do get in touch.
- To have a student ambassador visit your school, contact Amy Wigham, Education Liaison Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are aware of a previous student from your school who is now studying at the University of Reading, and would be interested in them coming back to your school to talk to your students about their experiences as part of the Feedback scheme, please contact Tasha Jones, Student Recruitment and Access Officer (email@example.com)
- STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) students help to deliver science-based subjects out in schools and on campus. Contact: Claire Challis, Student Recruitment and Access Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org
