African Postgraduate Students
Become an Ambassador for Africa
- Do you want to help young people understand Africa?
- Are you an African postgraduate student at the University of Leeds?
- Would you like to gain experience working in British schools?
Then why not become a LUCAS Schools Project Teacher?
You don't need any teaching experience. We will provide all the training you need. All we ask is that you are enthusiastic and committed to raising awareness of Africa amongst young people.
MA and PhD students come from all across the University. We have recruited students from a wide range of courses, such as Development Studies, Education, TESOL, Economics and Finance, Communications Studies, Public Health and even Chemical Engineering. Whatever you're studying, you can get involved!
To prepare you to deliver lessons, we will ...
- familiarise you with British schools
- introduce you to active learning methodology
- provide guidance with teaching strategies, classroom management and lesson planning.
You will learn how to teach and develop your communications skills, and you'll make a positive impact on the local community.

What our students say
"Rich, rewarding and worth it but also challenging." Effie Tambala (Malawi), MA Development Studies
"I felt it would be a good opportunity to project Africa and show Africa as it really is rather than the misrepresented Africa on BBC and the foreign media." Ejekwumadu Ikechukwu (Nigeria), MA Sociology
