Being a StudyNT Student Ambassador will complement your current studies while contributing to your personal and professional development. You will help promote Northern Territory education provider as well as showcase all the Northern Territory has to offer as a study destination and place to call home. As an ambassador you will be part of a select team of students who will undertake activities throughout 2018.

In addition to five professional development days, you may have the opportunity to:

  • attend formal receptions and dinners with local and international business people
  • present to meetings on your experiences as an international student
  • meet political leaders, the business community and academics.

Throughout your time as a 2018 StudyNT Student Ambassador the message you will be delivering is that Australia’s Northern Territory offers an amazing range of education options with plenty of employment and work experience opportunities, all surrounded by a vibrant and multicultural community.

Outside of your chosen studies, the StudyNT Student Ambassador Program gives you learning opportunities you won’t find in the classroom. You will be immersed in the StudyNT community via functions, community events, forums, social media and networking.

While there are plenty of benefits, endorsing the Northern Territory as a place to live and learn comes with a lot of responsibility. For this reason we want to build a team of confident young people who will represent StudyNT professionally and most of all are passionate about our message and this amazing place where we live.

We’ll give you the support, tools and training to be successful. The rest is up to you.
