Work with us

We could not do what we do if we did not have enthusiastic and dedicated Widening Participation Tutors, Undergraduate Mentors, supporters and donors. 

If you are interested in working with school pupils, from S1-S6, both in-school, online and on-campus, then part time work as a Widening Participation Tutor might be for you.  

As an undergraduate student here at the University, you can work with us to support school pupils as they follow in your footsteps, working alongside Widening Participation staff and Postgraduate Tutors at on-campus events and visits.  If you have taken part in a WP pre-entry programme, we will contact you when you start your degree to see if you are interested in being a Undergraduate Mentor. 

We also work with a wide range of supporters, from funding bodies and local authorities to third sector organisations and donors.

If you are interested in exploring ways to collaborate and support widening participation work at the University of Glasgow, please contact us.
