Student Ambassador Scheme

The Student Ambassador Scheme recruits current University of Suffolk students yearly to support a wide range of activities and events.

Our Student Ambassadors act as role models and motivators, to encourage younger students to consider higher education and apply to the University of Suffolk. By talking to students, parents and teachers, Ambassadors share their own personal experiences of higher education. This may include any challenges or barriers they have overcome, as well as successes, achievements and life as a Suffolk student. 

A key part of the role is providing help, advice and useful information at events such as Open Events, campus tours, school campus visits, community events and higher education conventions. It's a great opportunity to earn money, gain work experience, help potential students and be part of a friendly, proactive team.
