Meet our Student Ambassadors

About our Student Ambassadors

RMIT Training Student Ambassadors are current, or recently graduated students, who volunteer with the Student Experience team to represent the student body, assist with event coordination, giving informal mentoring to fellow students, and share their experiences as an international student at RMIT Training.

Photography and video editing are some of my interests. Anything about cars and planes? I will be the person you need to meet. I'm looking forward to becoming your friend.

Meet Sunayana

I am Sunayana from Nepal. I am in my second semester of Foundation Studies, Science, Engineering and Health before starting my Bachelor of Computer Science. Melbourne has been wonderful for the past seven months, and the best part is the cute, little cafés I explore with friends during mini-breaks from class. Melbourne won't let you down if you are an art fanatic like me! I like to paint, hang out with friends, or work on tech projects. I am eager to help you explore Melbourne.

Meet Derek

How to become a Student Ambassador

Applications open in January and June. Keep your eyes on your inbox for an invitation to join the program. Alternatively, you can email the Student Experience team to express your interest.

Frequently Asked Questions

Your Ambassadorship will last for one semester. This may be February - June or July - December. If you want to continue for more than one semester you’re most welcome to apply again.

If you are now at RMIT University you are welcome to apply. Having alumni on our team of Ambassadors is a great addition to the program.

We generally recruit around 6-10 Ambassadors each semester.

Ambassadors help plan, organise and delivery activities and events for all students at RMIT Training. For example, you might help us plan a calendar of activities for a month, cook sausages on a BBQ, or help plan a student party.

They also help bridge the gap between the Student Experience team and the greater student body by promoting activities to students. This might be on social media or through informal chats in class.

You will learn new skills, for example, video editing, make new friends (Ambassadors often find their besties in the program), become more confident and a better leader, get the feel-good vibes that come with volunteering, and above all, you’ll have fun! You’ll also get free or discounted entry to activities and some free merch!
