Current students

As well as delivering outreach work through  our activities, the Widening Participation department provides opportunities and support for current students at King’s College London.

How can I get involved?

Become a King's College Student Ambassador

The Widening Participation department employs current students to work on our activities with young people, mature learners, parents and carers and teachers, as part of the  King's Student Ambassador Scheme.

Interaction with student ambassadors has been proven to be one of the most effective ways of raising aspirations and encouraging young people and mature learners to consider applying to university.

Currently, widening participation student ambassadors are involved in a range of activities, on and off campus, including:

  • working with year 12 and 13 students on our  K+ programme
  • supporting young people in secondary schools through  King’s Scholars
  • representing King’s at higher education fairs and parents’ evenings.

 

Volunteering

Student Groups

There is a wide range of active students groups and societies providing widening participation activity through  King’s College London Students’ Union (KCLSU).

KCLSU is keen to reach out to under-represented groups and communities, and is happy to support new and existing projects. If you are a King's student and are interested in starting up a new widening participation activity, please contact  anisha.bhogaita@kclsu.org.

For more information visit the  KCLSU widening participation web pages.

IntoUniversity Mentors

We work in partnership with the charity  IntoUniversity to deliver widening participation activity to primary pupils. IntoUniversity relies on the work of volunteers and we encourage students at King’s to get involved.

Partnerships

We work with a range of other strategic partners, some of which offer volunteering opportunities. Find out more on our  partnerships webpage.
