Domestic Student Ambassadors

Applications for the 2016 Student Ambassador program are open until the 31st of October.

Student Ambassadors are current students who are passionate about the University of Canberra. Our team is comprised of enthusiastic and outgoing students from all areas of study who wish to share their university experiences with others.

SAs are employed as casual staff and assist the Marketing team with various domestic recruitment events and activities throughout the year, primarily promoting the University of Canberra to prospective students (typically grades 10 – 12).

These positions are open to domestic undergraduate and postgraduate students only (Australian or New Zealand citizenship or permanent residency) who have at least one year left of their degree.

How to apply

Please complete the SA application form and provide a resume to marketing@canberra.edu.au.

What you get out of it

You'll be able to develop strong communication and public speaking skills as you promote the University to prospective students, parents, and careers advisors. You will also gain experience in direct marketing and event management through working at local and interstate recruitment events.

The program offers fantastic travel opportunities for Ambassadors where you'll have the chance to share your UC experiences with prospective students from regional and metropolitan NSW.

Not only will you get paid as a UC Level 1 casual staff member, but you'll get to work in a team of fun and supportive people who share a similar passion for their degree and UC.
