Interested in developing skills, making friends and earning some extra money - become a Student Ambassador at City!

Published Friday, 24th September, 2021 in University news

One of the many ways you can get involved during your time at City is by becoming a Student Ambassador. Ambassadors work within many teams within the University to provide an authentic student approach helping a range of people both internally and externally.

At City, there are four different schemes available to be a part of. While each of them might have some overlap with others for what you might do in the role, they all have their own individual aims and target audiences.

All Ambassador schemes at City are also paid and so provide a great way of earning some extra money around your studies, whilst getting to know other students you otherwise wouldn’t interact with and enriching your University experience. You can also apply to as many as you like! Just remember to consider balancing your studies with work.

Student Voice Ambassadors

Student Voice Ambassadors are all about providing student feedback and input into projects designed to support and enhance the student experience, so you can really make a difference in you and your peers time at City. In particular, the scheme is set up to enable student involvement in projects relating to the following strategies:

  • Education and Student Strategy (ESS)
  • Access and Participation Plan (APP)
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy (EDI Strategy)

There are two streams available within the scheme:

  1. Student Voice – providing feedback via surveys, focus groups and email (students are paid £8.91 + £1.08 holiday pay)
