Be a student ambassador

The student ambassador leadership programme is here to help new and future AUT students transition into university and provide support at various events. Find out more about how AUT student ambassadors support students as they start their journey at AUT and how you can become a student ambassador.

What is a student ambassador?

Student ambassadors volunteer their time to welcome new AUT students and help them settle in during their first semester. They also volunteer at events throughout the year, including Orientation and AUT LIVE. Student ambassadors can answer the questions other students may have – from study tips and great places to eat to where to go if you need support.

Student ambassadors will be provided with opportunities to gain leadership skills and network with other student leaders.
