Global Ambassador Program

I loved studying in Germany because it was easy to travel to other countries, embrace new cultures, learn new languages and meet interesting people. On my exchange I visited France, Brussels, The Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Vatican City, Croatia and Slovenia.

What is a Global Student Ambassador?

    Go Global Ambassadors are students who have returned from an overseas program and are passionate about their experience and are willing to share their knowledge and expertise with others and also connect with inbound international students.

What is involved?

  • Share stories of your overseas experiences with friends, colleagues, and employers.
  • Join a series of networking and professional development activities in order to maximise the learnings obtained during your time overseas.
  • Earn official recognition for your contribution at the end of each semester:
    • Certificate of Participation: 30 - 59 volunteering hours over one semester
    • Certificate of Participation with Distinction: 60 - 99 volunteering hours over one semester
    • Certificate of Participation with High Distinction: 100+ volunteering  hours over one semester
      • Distinction and High Distinction Ambassadors will also receive an additional special reward: a gift voucher to be used for your future travel
