The Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme (UAS) is a national programme endorsed by the Department of Trade and Industry and Department for Education and Skills’ joint project ‘Science and Engineering Ambassadors Scheme’. It was started by author Simon Singh, who has links with the Mathematics department, at Royal Holloway.
In your third year, you’ll have the opportunity to gain valuable transferable skills through this scheme as you’re given first-hand experience of science education. You’ll spend half a day each week for one term in a local school under the supervision of a specific teacher who will act as a trainer and mentor as well as determining your tasks and responsibilities. This course counts towards your final degree result in the same way as other third year maths courses.
