What our current ambassadors say

Headshot for Marjon Student Jamie


I have been a student ambassador since June 2023 and could not recommend it enough. Being a student ambassador, I feel a sense of responsibility to help inform the next generation of prospective Marjon Students, and I do this by sharing my own positive experiences from my time at the university not only during lectures but also extracurricular activities and social events.

I am a second year Sports Journalism student and my favourite events to work are the aspirations days where we work closely with schools and colleges to give them a feel of what the course is like at Marjon and show them what a “day in the life of a journalism student” is really like.

These days have always provided an essential opportunity for prospective students to get a feel of university life and give an insight into a course / career they may have never considered before.

Finally, the scheme itself has provided me with some great work experience for my CV, whilst also offering flexible hours and a steady income whilst studying.

I have been a student ambassador for over 3 years, and it has been one of the best experiences of my university journey. The main benefits have been increased confidence to present at various events such as, postgrad welcome talks, gaining transferable skills which I have placed on my CV including teamwork and leadership.

Also, working as an SA has brought cohesion to my student life, offering a sense of belonging to the Marjon family which has enabled me to progress further in my studies by staying on to do my MRes and starting a Menopause Cafe on campus. Suffice to say it has been an integral part of my growing skill set which I will take into my future endeavours and employment.

The role provides a wide range of opportunities, to enhance or use your skills, perfect for personal or professional development. I enjoy being able to meet potential students, and work with existing students from other courses, and to share my passion in promoting our university.
