Become a Student Ambassador

Every year we rely on our enthusiastic and passionate Student Ambassadors to share their first-hand experiences of life as a University of South Wales student. 

Attending a variety of events and meeting prospective students, their friends and families, our Student Ambassadors provide a positive and authentic insight into University life.

As a Student Ambassador you will play a vital role in representing the University and recruiting prospective students. You will be given the opportunity to gain valuable experience, and become part of a team committed to inspiring the next generation of students to study at the University of South Wales.

As a Student Ambassador you could be asked to work at a number of on-campus events such as Open Days, Applicant and Interview Days, and Information Fairs.

You will also be given the opportunity to travel, representing the University at off-campus events such as UCAS and HE Fairs, as well as outreach activities with schools and colleges. 

Within these events you can work in a variety of roles from meeting and greeting visitors and managing car parking, to providing campus and accommodation tours. You may also be asked to deliver a talk about your subject or your personal experience of student life.
