Skills to list on your student ambassador CV

Before you begin writing, make sure you know how to write a CV in a way that best emphasises your strengths.

A student ambassador is a representative of the school or university that they attend. Ambassadors need to have a deep knowledge of the school, its courses, and its culture to work with admissions to recruit new students, promote the university, and provide tours.

Ambassadors also collaborate with local alumni groups, keeping them up-to-date on what’s happening at the school and helping organise joint events. To be selected for an ambassador role, you typically need to make a CV that shows you’re academically successful, involved in extracurricular activities, or a proven leader.
