Make a difference this summer!

Each year, the Widening Participation team runs several summer events which provide students from underrepresented backgrounds with invaluable insight into Higher Education.

The participants consistently highlight the student ambassadors as what makes these events such a success. Feedback includes comments such as they "had the best ambassadors ever at Warwick. They truly cared about us"

It's not just the students who get a lot out of it - these events are a great opportunity for you to develop a wide variety of skills, such as teamwork, empathy, resilience and communication.

Previous ambassadors have reported that "the ambassadors worked so well as a team and the kids were really thriving as a result. It was so rewarding!".

What skills have you developed?

"Leadership skills - taking control of a group and getting them focused on a task. Timekeeping - making sure tasks didn't overrun. Improvisation - if something went wrong, not being unnerved by it but rolling with the punches."

"I feel that my confidence & communication skills have increased. I feel more able to get on with the young people, and to talk to them on their level."

What have you enjoyed?

"Interacting with the young people and seeing them develop their confidence"

"Seeing the group grow as people; getting more confident and becoming closer friends as it went on"
