Chanelle studies Economics and Accounting, and did her placement year as a financial reporting analyst. She also helped train other ambassadors to give campus tours.

My experience:

As well as the flexibility of the role, being an Ambassador was an opportunity for me to inform students about university life and give them a real life insight. In some cases you get to see students who know nothing about university, becoming informed and changing their mind and considering it as a next step for them.

My motivation:

I love being able to impact students’ lives, by providing them with real life experiences.

My skills development:

  • Confidence:carrying out campus tours allowed me to build my confidence as I would have to speak and engage with new people every time
  • Self-motivation: being asked to train new student ambassadors helped me realise what I achieved which improved my drive to accomplish more
  • Engaging young people: when helping students complete activities you always have to make sure you have their full attention so that they could complete their tasks

My recommendation:

You are able to develop so many skills without thinking about it. You also get to meet so many new students that you may not have met before. I have made some friends for life and that was from being an ambassador.
