Student Ambassadors student ambassadors

Our Student Ambassadors help out at Open Days and events, co-host campus tours, and provide admin assistance in the office. We find that pupils are inspired by honest stories from those who have been to College.

Contact any of our Engagement & Outreach Officers about Open Events, Campus tours, the Student Ambassador scheme, or to arrange school visits.
