What is an RGU Student Ambassador?

For the past three years alongside my studies and a number of other part time roles, I have been an RGU Student Ambassador.

The RGU Student Ambassadors are a group of students from across the university who represent RGU both on and off campus. Our job roles are varied, and from week to week we carry out different tasks. You’ll see us at undergraduate and postgraduate open evenings and information days. We give campus tours, offer advice based on our own personal experiences and we write right here on this blog! Also, you’ll find us doing all the normal student things like rushing around campus trying not to be late for our next class (or maybe that’s just me!).

One of the best things about being an RGU Student Ambassador is that the hours are incredibly flexible. This means that this job can be worked alongside other positions and there is no pressure to commit a certain amount of hours each week. During exam season this is a life-saver!

The role of an RGU Student Ambassador is incredibly rewarding. We meet people who are deciding where to attend university and spend the next four years of their life. It is not an easy decision, they may be leaving home for the first time, or going to a new city where they don’t know anyone. We know how difficult that can be – but also that the whole experience is worthwhile. We’re able to ease someone’s doubts and provide insight into problems that may arise and how to tackle them. We can share how we’ve found our workload and the best time to squeeze in an afternoon nap.

If you’re thinking about becoming an RGU Student Ambassador, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it. If you have any questions about the role feel free to leave them in the comments and I’ll get back to you!
