Physics Ambassador Scheme

Poster with photos of ambassadors doing outreach and access work
We're looking for Oxford Physics undergraduate students to be Ambassadors for the physics department - this is your chance to get involved with our outreach and access work! Our work covers a huge range of areas, from science stalls at music festivals to courses supporting students studying for the PAT. You can get involved at whatever level you like, from occasionally helping out to developing new ideas, demonstrations and programmes.

There are plenty of paid opportunities, and you can choose which events to get involved with - we run things in evenings, at weekends or in the daytime, so there's bound to be something that suits you. You will meet other likeminded students as well as researchers, staff and more, all while sharing your enthusiasm for physics with others. If you want to, you can also build your confidence and presentation skills in a friendly and supportive environment.

We send out a weekly bulletin with details of all the upcoming opportunities to all our ambassadors. In order to be an ambassador, you need to come along to an Ambassador Training session, run jointly with other science departments in Oxford. If you sign up below, we will be in touch with details of training opportunities and how to get involved.

To register your interest in being an ambassador, please fill in this form:

The current version of the Physics Ambassador Handbook is available here.

If you have any questions, you can get in touch with our Access Officer, Kathryn, who runs the Ambassador Scheme, by emailing her.
