Undergraduate ambassadors scheme

The Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme (UAS) provides the framework for a degree course module awarding academic credit to science, technology, engineering and maths undergraduates working with teachers in local schools.

The Undergraduate Ambassadors Scheme (UAS) is the brainchild of the author and broadcaster Simon Singh who was concerned with the decline in school pupils and university undergraduates studying science, technology and mathematics. The scheme was started in 2002, with the aim of developing an academic module framework and materials that would support these shortage subjects and allow undergraduates to spend time in the school classroom to pick-up transferable skills, thereby earning academic credit towards their degree.
