Our Student Ambassadors are current students who work with the Marketing, Student Recruitment & Communications team.

As a Student Ambassador, you can expect to pick up a range of different roles.

From supporting at Open Days, leading campus tours, helping at UCAS fairs or assisting with interviews and applicant visit days. We will give you full training and you will have the flexibility to work when you want and to try out roles that might suit your skill set.

You’ll also have the opportunity to create fun and engaging content with our Social Media team, if you wish to do so. This is usually shared across our online platforms, on our website and even recently on Spotify and TikTok. Take a look at some of our previous videos and blogs.

Working as an Ambassador

When deciding on whether to become a Student Ambassador, please consider how you will manage this work alongside your degree – your studies must be your priority.

If you are an international student, you must also not exceed the number of hours stated on your BRP (Biometric Residence Permits) card, as students on a Tier 4/Student Route Visa are limited to certain time restrictions for the work that they do:

  • no more than 10 hours per week in term-time if your course is below degree level (e.g. a Foundation or Pre-Sessional course)
  • no more than 20 hours per week in term-time if your course is at degree level.

If it comes to our attention that you are exceeding the number of hours your visa allows you to work each week, we will pass this information on to the International Compliance Manager, who will report you to the UKVI and this could result in your sponsorship being withdrawn.

For the University to remain compliant, international students are only allowed to have one atypical role, so for example it is not possible to become a Student Ambassador and Digital Ambassador.
