‌Student Advocates

Are you interested in working with local young people?

Working with the University of Liverpool's Widening Participation and Outreach team as a Student Advocate gives you the chance to inspire young people who may be first in their family to go to university, to aim higher and learn about opportunities in higher education.

We work with young people in primary and secondary schools, organising visits to the University and delivering sessions in classrooms. Our aim is to raise awareness of higher education and to motivate and inspire young people to achieve and elevate their aspirations to study at this level. Student Advocates are an essential part of this work, acting as positive role models to demystify university by sharing their own experiences and insights. The work is demanding, fun and extremely rewarding!
