What’s being a Student Ambassador really like?
“I was a Student Ambassador for my three years at Glyndŵr; it’s honestly the best job on campus! The hours are flexible, the work is easy and it is great experience for the CV. All you have to do is talk about your uni and be a role model for the next generation looking at higher education. I am so grateful to have been a student ambassador, I have travelled round the UK (with expenses), given talks to hundreds of people and made some great contacts and friends. If you love your Uni and you have a personality that inspires, become a student ambassador.” Billy Paterson, BA (Hons) English
“I first started my role as a student ambassador last summer and since then have fully enjoyed my role; it gives me the opportunity to earn extra money whilst studying. There are many opportunities to work including for example, open days. Other than the money it gave me the chance to meet some really lovely people and make new friends. I would highly recommend applying for this role.” Hayley Roberts, First year student BA (Hons) Families and Childhood Studies
