What is a student ambassador?
International Student Ambassadors (ISAs) are current students who act as a link between the university and the outside community. They use their own experiences to give people interested in university life an idea of what it is like to be a student. They assist at a variety of events; their role is to give a fair and accurate representation of the university from a student perspective.
Here are some of the top benefits of becoming an international student ambassador:
- Looks great on your CV/resume: You will gain valuable work experience and you can improve your skills such as communication, public speaking, teamwork and working with different age groups.
- Networking: You will meet students from over the world and will be working closely with university staff and your fellow ISAs. It could stand you in good stead when in need of recommendation letters or contacts for a potential position.
- Trainings: We will provide training sessions to help develop or enhance your intercultural, networking, project planning and professional skills.
- Certificate: You can be an ambassador for one or more full academic years. At the end of the academic year, you receive a certificate that you have been an ISA.
- It’s fun! You will meet new friends, try new activities and help others along the way.
Anyone can apply who is currently enrolled in a full-degree English/German-taught programme (non-exchange) at the UP.
