Become a Student Ambassador

As the face of the University, our Student Ambassadors support members of staff with a number of university-wide events - you become part of the team!

As current students, you provide a direct and unique insight into student life and studying at the University of South Wales. You can really make a difference by telling others about your experiences. 

We're looking for enthusiastic, friendly and confident people to join our team and represent the University and their course. You will use your knowledge and individual experiences to answer questions from visitors, prospective students and their families.
