What is a Student Ambassador?

A Student Ambassador is someone who enjoys meeting new people, encourages others to get involved and is always happy to help answer any questions someone may have. They are always eager to help out; ensuring new students settle in and make the most out of their time while at University. Student Ambassadors also get the opportunity to get involved in exciting projects and assisting staff to host events for our students.
Main responsibilities include helping students to settle in over check-in weekend, answering any questions new and prospective students may have and organising and hosting tours and events. You will also have the opportunity to share your experiences of living with Unite Students at open days and hosting virtual tours over the summer. 

I love being a student ambassador because I get to help other people with things like moving in or answering questions about the property I also live in. The best part about it is I get to meet so many students through the events we organise, like welcome get-togethers, Halloween parties and film nights. People respect and trust you, because they know they can rely on you because we’ve already been there.

Will

My name is William and I’ve been living with Unite Students for over a year now. I’m studying History at the University of Reading and I love it! I’m half English and half Jordanian. Coming from this multicultural background, it’s great to be able to work with and interact with so many different cultures at Kendrick Hall, really making it feel like home for me. In my first year it took me a while to settle in as it was a new experience for me, moving away from home, especially since my home is over 2000 miles away! Overcoming these challenges and helping others settle in is one of the main reasons I became a Student Ambassador. I wanted to help create the best experience possible for students who are moving from across the country or abroad, and help them familiarise themselves with the area and life away from home. I’ve found the experience very rewarding so far as I’ve met so many new people and had the chance to work with other ambassadors to help organise events. I look forward to many more opportunities in this role!

Coralie

My name is Coralie, I am a final year student studying Accountancy and I am passionate about diversity. I am French, originally from Benin Republic a tiny country in west of Africa. I love travelling and spending time with my family. I also love clothes shopping but being a student doesn’t always allow you to be a big shopper. You will have other priorities. I became a student ambassador because I wanted to gain some work experience to add to my CV. I was planning to go on a placement year but I felt that taking a year out from university might not have been so beneficial so I decided to apply to become a Student Ambassador. I have gained so much from this experience, from public speaking to self-confidence and much more.

Ravina

I’m Ravina, a student, a Londoner, and a Student Ambassador for Unite Students. I’m in my third and final year of completing my Psychology BSc degree. Though I dedicate a significant amount of time towards my education, I like to give myself time to enjoy myself. Money is often tight when you’re at university, that’s why I applied for the Student Ambassador position this year. It’s unlike other jobs out there; it is very flexible working around your university timetable so you don’t have to choose between studying and your job. Most importantly it involves taking part in fun events that you get to create and promote.
