University of Oulu Alumni Ambassadors 2018-2019

Apply to become UniOulu Ambassador!

Next application round to become a UniOulu Ambassador is in September 2019. You can apply with an online form; link will be available in this page during the application period). The programme is open to current University of Oulu Master's degree students and new students who will start their studies at the University of Oulu in the autumn semester 2019.

UniOulu Ambassadors represent the University of Oulu on social media, webinars, study fairs and other events. Your main task is to be active in social media channels, especially Instagram, Facebook and SnapChat. You want to share your experience as a University of Oulu student with international applicants.

You will make good friends, polish communication skills and get to have a look at the field of HE communications, marketing and public affairs as a potential future career opportunity. UniOulu Ambassadors will be compensated for some duties while some tasks remain volunteering opportunities.

We will meet regularly throughout the academic year in training sessions and to share experiences and ideas. You will go through a training programme after which you will feel confident in your role as a UniOulu Alumni Ambassador.  Please have a careful look at the schedule below; you need to be able to participate in the training sessions. Some training sessions will be organised over the weekend and after office hours to minimize coinciding with lectures.

You will have UniOulu Ambassador team leaders and Communications, Marketing and Public Affairs supporting you.
