Welcome to the Student Ambassador Scheme
The University of Kent’s Student Ambassador Scheme, launched in 2002, recruits undergraduate and postgraduate students to represent the University at on-campus events as well as in local schools, colleges and the community.
Whilst working with a variety of target groups, the central aim of the scheme’s wide array of activities is to encourage learners to consider progression to higher education generally, as well as to the University of Kent specifically.
Student Ambassadors are central to these activities, providing a role model to learners and a unique perspective which can engage and inspire.
Through the work and training opportunities it provides, the scheme helps its Student Ambassadors to develop skills in preparation for future employment, builds confidence and encourages personal development, whilst greatly enhancing the student experience.
Opportunities may be paid, voluntary or attract academic credit which can count towards university qualifications:
- If you are a student interested in finding out more about what it means to be an Ambassador, please navigate to the information for Prospective Ambassadors
- If you are a member of Kent staff and are interested in finding out how your School or department can develop opportunities for their students to take part in the scheme, please go to Information for Kent staff
- If you are a current Ambassador, please go to our Current Ambassadors page.
