Current Student Ambassadors

Only current students can apply to be student ambassadors.

How to Apply

Student ambassadors are recruited once a year. We are now open for applications. If you would like to apply to become a student ambassador please complete the application form here (you will require your University of Exeter username and password in order to access the form). The deadline to apply is: Friday 20 October 2017 at 17:00.

We welcome applications from all current students across the University of Exeter. Whilst all applicants will be judged on merit, we particularly welcome applications from groups currently underrepresented on the scheme, including international students; black, Asian and minority ethnic students; male students; and mature students.

After the application deadline, all applicants will be sent a link to an online skills test, which they must complete. The applications and skills test results will then be reviewed and shortlisted. Applicants that are successfully shortlisted will be invited to attend a group interview. The group interviews will be held on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 15 November 2017 (Exeter-based students)
  • Wednesday 22 November 2017 (Exeter-based students)
  • Wednesday 13 December 2017 (Penryn-based students)

Candidates that attend an interview will be notified of the outcome via email by no later than Friday 22 December 2017.

Successful candidates at interview will be invited to attend a compulsory training session on Saturday 27 January 2018 on the Streatham Campus (transport will be provided for students travelling to the training day from the Penryn Campus). The day is expected to run between 10:30 – 18:00 (plus approx. 2 hours travel time each way for Penryn-based students). There will also be further training on the afternoon of Sunday 28 January 2018 on the Streatham and St Luke’s Campuses (for Exeter-based students only); and in the following week on the Penryn Campus (for Penryn-based students only).

Before starting work as a student ambassador, successful applicants will be required to:
