What do Student Ambassadors do? 👀 My name is Ellie and I’m in my third year of Creative Writing BA (Hons). Part of our job is to help out at events such as UCAS exhibitions, offering information and a first-hand account of what it’s like to be a student at the University of Portsmouth - along with moving lots of boxes of prospectuses and setting up eye-catching stands such as this one! UCAS exhibitions are for current secondary school & college pupils who are thinking about going to University or are in the process of applying. They are a fantastic way of finding out about possible future pathways, such as University degrees, apprenticeships & more! Make the most of UCAS events by chatting directly with staff & students from different Universities about their courses, accommodation, societies, finance & anything else you’re curious about! As well as collecting plenty of prospectuses, leaflets and other free goodies. Don’t forget to get your barcode scanned too - we will send you all the necessary information you will need to apply/attend our University, as well as be entered into a prize draw to win a Uni Starter Kit worth £1,000! Terms and conditions can be found on our website: www.port.ac.uk/UCAS-competition There are also interactive activities and informative talks being given throughout the day. They are definitely up there with Open Days as one of the best ways to decide the next step for your future! 🌟 #PortsmouthUni#AskUPforUni#GiveMePortsmouth@portsmouthuni

Hi! My name is Siva and I am a third year Mechanical Engineering student at the University of Portsmouth. . . This weekend I will be going back home to Morden to visit my family and clean my laundry 😂😎 and i will be posting to show what it is like to go home for a weekend as a uni student! . . The luggage in the second picture has all my dirty clothes. I take my laundry home so that I can wash my clothes at home. This saves me a lot of money than washing clothes at uni all the time. . . How I get home? I take two trains and walk for 20mins the whole journey takes 2hr 30mins. 🚈🚄 I often go home once a fortnight unless I have coursework to do then I will stay and do my work at the library over weekend. To go home costs me £18 with return and this is with a railcard. I will definitely advice you to get a railcard or a coach card when you come to uni this will help you save a lot of money! 💷💸 During the journey I usually listen to music and read a book if not I will watch a movie on my laptop. 💻🎬 . . . . @portsmouthuni#Portsmouthuni#AskUPforUni#GiveMePortsmouth#UniLife#MyFuture#unigoals#trainjourneys#homesweethome

One of the most amazing things about being at university is being surrounded by so many inspirational people. People that challenge you and push you to expect more of yourself and others. As it's International Women's Day we wanted to celebrate just some of the inspirational women @portsmouthuni ... #Repost from @portsmouthuni ... To celebrate #InternationalWomensDay we want to share some of our inspirational female researchers with you: Judith Fletcher-Brown Judith used her recovery from breast cancer to launch a new educational initiative in India, where survival rate is only about 50%, to help some of the worlds poorest women win their own battles with the disease. Professor Claudia Maraston Claudia holds the Royal Astronomical Society’s Eddington Medal for Astronomy for creating new models to better understand space. She is driven by the thrill of discovery, the certainty that scientific research is challenged and a passion to inspire others. Dr Claire Nee Claire’s work has changed the way police and insurance companies advise people to avoid some crimes and brought hope to those who try to rehabilitate criminals. Claire was one of the first in the world to consider asking ex-offenders to re-enact their crimes go help understand how we can protect ourselves. Professor Becky Milne Becky’s work is making interviewers more competent and ethical, helping cases make it to court and ensuring miscarriages of justice are less likely. Becky has spent decades fine-tuning art of questioning, helping to improve the way the UK fights crime. Dr Erika Hughes Erika was inspired to help society better understand, support and mend mental wounds of war veterans after seeing her own brother’s struggles. She is putting veterans on stage to talk about war, helping them, and audiences, drop the ‘hero’ image. Serena Cunsolo Serena is working on one of our planet’s most pressing problems - the plague of plastic pollution. She is looking at the journey plastic fragments from our clothes and cosmetics take from our washing machines to our rivers and seas. Keeping inspiring all of us to help change the world #IWD2019#InspirationalWomen#Research#GiveMePortsmouth
