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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information visit the KCLSU widening participation web pages.
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.
We work with a range of other strategic partners, some of which offer volunteering opportunities. Find out more on our partnerships webpage.
