How to become a Student Ambassador

The Student Ambassador Scheme runs multiple recruitment rounds throughout the academic year. Recruitment rounds will be advertised widely when open and will require you to complete an application form. Once the recruitment round deadline closes, all applications for that round will be shortlisted with successful applicants then being invited to interview. If successful at interview, you will be required to complete a set training programme before becoming a Student Ambassador.

Please note: if you apply in a recruitment round you need to ensure you are available for interview/training on the dates stated. Applications cannot be transferred to another recruitment/interview round.
