Mathematics Ambassador Scheme

Each year the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow runs the Mathematics Ambassador Scheme. This scheme is part of wider University involvement in the STEM Ambassador Programme. 

Sc., M.A., and M.Sci. students undertaking Honours Level 4 studies with a significant mathematics focus in their degree curriculum and who are passionate about pursuing a school career teaching are encouraged to consider applying to our Ambassador Scheme Projects. The application process involves crafting a thoughtful paragraph articulating the student's motivations for engaging in the Ambassador Scheme, detailing relevant experiences, and demonstrating why they would excel as a representative of the university.

Conducted by the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Glasgow, this initiative facilitates placements in local schools from October to December. Ambassadors dedicate 2-3 hours per week to gain valuable hands-on experience in primary and secondary teaching, specifically emphasizing mathematics education. Additionally, participants have the chance to engage in various STEM Ambassador events hosted by the University.
