"Being a student ambassador was a very rewarding experience. I was able to share my own university experience and give students a real life insight which ultimately assists them with the transition from high school to university”

“Meeting all of the student ambassadors and new students is fantastic. You really do make new friends and feel like you can impact someone’s life.


It takes care, time and belief in what you’ve done to be a good student ambassador. You have to be passionate because the more passionate you are, the more helpful and encouraging you are to students and their families.”
