UK Student Recruitment Ambassador

A fantastic opportunity to engage with the public, strengthen your skills, meet new people and share your passion for QMUL.

We are Team Mary

Working for the UKSR ambassador programme has been one of the best decisions I’ve made at university. It has broadened my CV massively and given me a wide range of new skills. I've had so much fun as the work is always varied and it's really supported me throughout my time here. I've also met so many lovely people and have learnt to be a lot more confident when meeting new people.
