Events and trainings

Trainings for ambassadors

All student ambassadors will receive compulsory training for their work as ambassadors. Trainings are organised at the beginning of each academic year. We will provide our student ambassadors with all printed and online materials. We will also invite you to use the Unibuddy platform for discussions with potential applicants, so you do not have to utilise your own social media profiles. Basic training for student ambassadors 2022-2023 is organised 20 September 2022. A separate training for those selected as social media ambassadors will be organised 22 September 2022. All trainings are mandatory and a prerequisite for taking part in the student ambassador activities.

Workshops for ambassadors

As of academic year 2021-2022 we have introduced a new bonus for our active student ambassadors: a workshop series. There will be a few topic-related workshops, led by professionals in the field, during the autumn semester and you can pick the ones that interest you the most. Attending the workshops will not only help you in your ambassador activities but also provide you with useful skills for your future worklife and career. Detailed information on the workshops in academic year 2022-2023 will be given later for those students selected as student ambassadors.
