Ambassador Scheme

Univ runs a highly successful volunteering programme for our current students in which they assist with our schools liaison and access work.

Our ambassador team is made up of over 75 students from many different backgrounds and subject areas. The Univ ambassadors work with young people to encourage, motivate and inspire them to continue and complete their studies successfully. They assist in providing students with advice, information and guidance on progression to higher education and applying to the University of Oxford. The ambassadors act as tour guides on Open Days, visits from schools and other events and help to  run a wide variety of events and schemes such as school visits, e-mentoring, summer schools, taster days for primary school, secondary school and college students.

The ambassadors have completed a comprehensive training scheme to ensure they are well prepared to visit schools and colleges. Each ambassador gives as much or as little of their time as they wish. Many ambassadors find the role very worthwhile and rewarding and have gone on to related careers upon graduation. If you would like an ambassador to visit your school then please contact our Access and Schools Liaison Officer, who coordinates the scheme, on the followong email or number:
