We believe students who understand the benefits of higher education and are enthusiastic about City would suit this scheme. Being reliable and professional are vital to this role. Anyone currently studying at City University is free to apply to this role, even students that have just graduated can work for a year!
Why apply to this scheme?
- To develop your public speaking, teamwork and independent thinking skills.
- Great CV-booster.
- Build your self-confidence.
- Make friends with other students from all over the University.
- Lastly, to get paid of course! (£8ph)

What are Senior Student Ambassadors?
Senior Ambassadors are ambassadors who are given more responsibility such as being in charge of a team of ambassadors at events such as Open Days. Senior Ambassadors are recruited every summer. They are also paid a higher hourly rate than Student Ambassadors. This role provides great leadership experience.
How will it fit in with your studies?
The scheme provides flexible part time work. Ambassadors are informed via email of work when it becomes available and most of the time, it is on a first-come-first-served basis. Student Ambassadors must be available to commit to a minimum of two events per term but they can choose to work as much or as little as they wish.
Christianah Babajide has been a Law Student Ambassador at City University for a year. She has successfully managed her workload with the flexibility of this role. Christianah strongly encourages City students to apply to the Student Ambassador Scheme.
“I have had the time of my life as a Student Ambassador of City University. I have been privileged to meet other students, give campus tours to prospective students, talk to parents about my experience at City, describe the LLB course and represent my university at internal and external events like UCAS fairs and Offer Holder Days. Being a Student Ambassador has improved my self-confidence, honed my public speaking skills and allowed me to learn so much about the university. Due to the number of tours I have given, I have been able to find my tutorial classes quicker! As I go into the next academic year, I shall continue to work as an Ambassador because it is a deeply gratifying role as I am given the chance to truly inspire young people and make a difference.”
Do not miss out on this amazing opportunity: you might be the reason someone chooses City.
