About my position
I work within the Admissions Department, along with seven Vice-Principals, to run the Student Ambassador Scheme. This involves working with around 400 Student Ambassadors to organise and run Visiting Days, Access and Widening Participation projects, and external events, such as school visits and Offer Holder events across the country. On top of this, we run visitor experience sessions, partake in photoshoots, and provide tours for visitors & VIPs.
How my position affects you
Any student that attended an event hosted by the University before starting at St Andrews will have had interaction with a Student Ambassador. I personally remember who I met at an external event that I attended, and they were a major factor in my decision to come to St Andrews. It is great to be able to represent the University, and support prospective students through their decision-making process. Students have the opportunity to apply to become an Ambassador twice a year (September and February). This is a great opportunity for you to improve your CV, and gain valuable and transferable skills. Please visit our website for more information, or email me at [email protected]
if you have any questions!
I’m a final year student studying Psychology, and I’m from Manchester. I have been involved in the Ambassador Scheme since I started at St Andrews four years ago, and it has been such a great experience. I’ve had the opportunity to meet prospective students from all over the world, whilst making some great friends and improving my CV along the way. Last year, I was the Science and Medicine Faculty President and enjoyed being part of the academic representation team, and this year I’m looking forward to getting involved in student representation in a different way!
Groups I work with
I'm a non-voting member of the SAF. I am also the SAF Tertiary Officer for the Executive Committee of the Students’ Association.
