What is a Student Ambassador

As Student Ambassadors, successful applicants will have a wide range of opportunities to engage with such as Undergraduate and Postgraduate Open Days, Calling Campaigns, digital Marketing and so much more.  

Student Ambassadors play a huge role in our events; responsible for ensuring that visitors to the University receive a high quality and enjoyable experience, representing the University in a variety of roles and showing prospective students and parents around the University on organised campus tours.  

Moreover, in the last few years the Student Ambassador Scheme has provided immeasurable support to university during the Pandemic such as manning the Covid Testing Centers and Catering outlets on Campus. The role is very diverse and new opportunities are generated every year for Ambassadors to take part in.
