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

Ambassadors will join Study Melbourne to help organise student events, create content to share across Study Melbourne channels, represent Study Melbourne at official functions, and share experiences and knowledge with the international student community.

How ambassadors benefit

This is a volunteer opportunity for international and domestic students and international student graduates. The program will run from February to December 2019.

This is a great opportunity to grow your network and develop valuable leadership and marketing skills.

The program will also be lots of fun, with social events and opportunities to visit Melbourne’s many events and attractions for free.
