Why should you get involved?

There are many great benefits to being a part of the programme.

Develop your skills

The activities of a student ambassador can be varied. One day you could be delivering a talk on student life at a local school, and the next you might be doing a campus or accommodation tour at our open and applicant days. You will get involved with a range of activities which will help you develop your confidence and public speaking skills to a range of audiences.

Make your CV stand out

The student ambassador programme makes your CV stand out. Employers love to see fun, extracurricular activities when you apply for jobs as it demonstrates key workplace skills, like time management, and shows that you participated in university life outside of your studies.

Make new friends

The programme is a fantastic way to make new friends and meet new people outside of your course.

I joined the Ambassador programme because I wanted to help others make their uni decision easier. I love talking to others about the uni at open days.
