Student Recruitment & Outreach Ambassadors support a wide range of activities online, on campus and in schools and colleges. If you are offered a post as a SRO Student Ambassador you can express interest in the activities which suit your interests and strengths, that fit around your other commitments. Some typical activities might include:
We have a wide range of opportunities for SRO Ambassadors to work with prospective students online. These include supporting and advising prospective students online webinars and chat rooms, e-mentoring, blogging, making video for our YouTube channel, running social media takeovers and much more!
Our Widening Participation and Outreach teams run a wide range of activities in-school to encourage young people to consider higher education. In-school activities might include helping run an activity such as the University Game, giving a talk about student life, or chatting to pupils and parents at a HE options evening.
Our on-campus activities for schools are designed to allow young people aged 11-17 the chance to visit a university campus, take part in a taster activity and speak to current undergraduates. They help students to see what university is actually like and picture themselves studying at a higher level.
SRO Ambassadors are essential to support us in running our large scale, on-campus events for prospective students, held throughout the year. Students at open days might give tours of the campus or accommodation, welcome visitors at the main registration point, or chat to visitors at a subject-specific help desk.
Our team visit a huge number of Higher Education and UCAS fairs around the country, throughout the year. As a SRO Ambassador attending the fair you would help to set up a stand and then chat to lots of interested students about the university, course options and life in Brighton.
