Role of a University of Bradford Student Ambassador

Our Student Ambassadors act as advocates for the university and their degree programme as well as acting as role models, helping to raise aspirations and awareness of Higher Education.

Ambassadors represent the university, supporting young people from primary and secondary schools as well as sixth forms and colleges on a range of different activities and events delivered by the University.

We are looking for students who are enthusiastic, with an outgoing and approachable personality. Students must be willing to join in, be reliable, punctual and well-organised. Above all, Ambassadors must enjoy working with a diverse range of people, especially children.

Our activities include:

  • Children's University
  • Higher Education Experience Days
  • Open Days
  • Peer and e-mentoring projects
  • Science Festival
  • Student Conferences
  • Summer Schools
  • Taster Days
  • UCAS Conventions

As a Student Ambassador you will undertake various duties, which include:

  • Sharing your experience of life at university and your course
  • Welcoming visitors on to the university campus at events such as the ones listed above
  • Acting as a tour-guide for events on campus
  • Ensuring that the young people are safe and happy during the events
  • Highlighting the benefits and opportunities offered through Higher Education to young people
  • Giving short talks/presentations about your own experience of going to university
  • Any other duties required by the University of Bradford which are consistent with the role

Working with us as a Student Ambassador is a great chance to develop a range of transferrable skills and gain valuable experiences that will aid your future employment opportunities.

How to apply

To become an Ambassador you must apply online here, attend a selection day and if successful complete the UBSA training. Once completed this will enable you to apply for some paid work opportunities.

The UBSA Ambassador training will last for half a day. It will involve fun and interactive activities, as well as giving students the opportunity to practice and develop mentoring skills for young people. Alongside the training, we may also ask that some Ambassadors are DBS checked for working with young people and children.

Places on selection days are limited, so please book early to avoid disappointment. If the training sessions are fully booked, you will be placed on a waiting list and informed of the next available selection dates.
