Student Recruitment & Admissions

Information for students

Being a Student Ambassador is a great way to get involved with the University, have fun and gain valuable skills.

When is the next recruitment?

We typically recruit on-campus postgraduate ambassadors in Autumn semester. We welcome applications from new Masters students as well as PhD students in any year of their programme. Please come back and look at this website in early September 2023 for more details about Postgraduate Student Ambassador recruitment.

We may host a small Undergraduate Ambassador recruitment process in the Autumn. Please check this website in early September for more details about whether we are recruiting ambassadors from your academic discipline. Applications are usually due during Week 1 of classes.

What are student ambassadors?

Student Ambassadors are an essential part of  the University’s recruitment and pre-arrival activity.  The ideal candidate is someone who is enthusiastic about sharing your authentic student experience with prospective students and their supporters. Ambassadors will have opportunities to represent the University, their School and their academic programme to internal and external audiences. 

Ambassadors will receive specific training to support the activity that is expected of them.

Pay and contracts

  • Student Ambassadors are guaranteed a minimum of 10 hours of work in each year of their contract. Work only needs to be accepted if they are available but we encourage active participation throughout the year in a variety of roles. 

  • The work is also flexible around your studies – there are no set hours per week or month. Whilst this work cannot offer a frequent income, it does offer valuable work experience.

  • Student Ambassadors are paid £11.14 per hour (plus 16% in lieu of annual leave allowances) - updated 7 February 2023.
