Student Ambassadors Network

Becoming a Student Ambassador is an exciting and rewarding way to earn money, while developing employability skills and gaining work experience. You'll also meet lots of other students from different backgrounds. 

How Being a Student Ambassador Has Prepared Me For A Career In Law

In June 2022, I was accepted into the University of Aberdeen Student Ambassador Network. I worked as a student ambassador all throughout my final year, and my only regret is not having joined the scheme earlier. It was, without a shadow of a doubt, the absolute highlight of my university experience. Not only did I have the opportunity to complete lots of exciting and varied work, I gained invaluable experience and skills while doing so - experience and skills which I can apply to my future legal career.
