About the Student Ambassador Scheme

The Student Ambassador Scheme runs an array of activities, working with a variety of people, with the central aim of encouraging learners to consider progression to higher education generally, as well as to the University of Kent specifically.

As ambassadors, Kent students are given the opportunity to get involved in a range of challenging and rewarding activities and projects, which are also designed to enable them to develop transferable employability skills, while greatly enhancing the student experience.

If you are a Kent student and are looking for work where you can engage, inspire and have an impact on people's lives, then the ambassador role could be right for you!

Being an ambassador at the University of Kent and working with such an amazing team for three years has easily been one of the highlights of my time at university and it is something I would recommend to anyone starting their university experience

Before making a decision to apply, it is important that you read the Our Work page and view the Current Vacancies.

You will need to submit an online application using your Kent email address. Staff will consider each application separately and on their own merit. If you are successful, you will be required to attend the relevant training session(s).

The Ambassador scheme allowed me to grow in confidence and gave me experience talking to people. I was also able to become active within the university community and support staff and students.

What type of work is involved?

Working as an ambassador provides a diverse experience, where no two days are ever the same! Check out the Our Work page for further details.

The Ambassador Band Structure is representative of the type of roles, duties and rates of pay which can currently be found within the scheme. However, please note that not all roles are available within all areas of the scheme, and that other roles may exist which are not included here.

Who can apply?

Any current student at the University of Kent is eligible to apply!  We are not looking for experts, but rather students who are passionate about their course and being a student at the University of Kent, who are keen to work with a wide range of audiences and share their individual journey. 

We particularly encourage applications from individuals who can add value and complement our existing cohort of Ambassadors - we believe that success is built on having teams whose backgrounds and personal experiences reflect the diversity of our students. We are particularly interested in the strengths and lived experiences of different ethnic groups and cultures, those who are care experienced, were in receipt of Free School Meals at school, or are a member of the LGBTQ+ community.  

As an international student, working on outreach activities was an interesting and meaningful opportunity for me. I learnt quite a lot about how higher education works in the UK and how important outreach work is
