We are very proud to launch the Study Melbourne Ambassador Program.

We are selecting students and international student alumni to help create a rich and supportive community for current and prospective students in Victoria.

The program runs from March until December this year and will involve organising student events, creating content to share across Study Melbourne channels, representing Study Melbourne at official functions, and sharing your experience and knowledge.

How ambassadors benefit

This is a volunteer opportunity for international students and international student graduates.

It's a great opportunity to gain work experience and valuable leadership and marketing skills. While no financial remuneration is provided, we will support ambassadors with Professional Development workshops and experiences. You will hone your interpersonal and communications skills in a professional environment. It will also be fun, with many social meet-ups that will introduce you to new friends and expand your personal networks.

Ambassador responsibilities

  • A half day introductory workshop in March 2018
  • Devote up to 12 hours per month to the program until December 2018 including a one hour in-person catch up every month in the CBD or South Yarra
  • Actively contribute content for Study Melbourne channels
  • Be part of the organising committee for the Study Melbourne major event to take place towards the end of 2018
