The Student Ambassador Scheme recruits current students to support a wide range of events and activities organised by the Schools and Colleges Liaison team (SCLS) including Open Days, HE Experience Days, University Visit Days and visits to schools and colleges. Student Ambassadors act as role models and motivators to encourage other young people to consider higher education. Ambassadors can share their own unique experiences including challenges and barriers they may have faced and overcome as well as successes and achievements.
Experience as an ambassador is an excellent way of enhancing your CV. All graduate employers look for evidence of extra-curricular activities and experience. You will also be paid for this work at the rate of £8.63 per hour (current as at August 2017).
