Who can apply?

The UniOulu Ambassador programme is open to current Master's students of the University of Oulu studying in the English-taught degree programmes.  New students may apply regardless of their location: even if you had been unable to make it to Oulu due to the pandemic, you may apply and be selected. The programme is open to international as well as Finnish students. 

What does it mean to be a UniOulu Ambassador?

UniOulu Ambassadors share their experience as a student of the University of Oulu in stories, pictures, videos, live sessions and social media updates in the University of Oulu online communication. Instagram stories on the UniOulu Instagram account and updates to the UniOulu Ambassador Facebook page are essential part of the ambassadors’ tasks.

What is in it for me? 

UniOulu Ambassadors will make good friends, polish communication skills and gain insight into the field of higher education communications, marketing and public affairs as a potential future career opportunity. You will get to know Oulukaverit, your peer student ambassadors studying in the Finnish-taught degree programmes. There is a compensation for the duties. 


How will I know what to do if I am selected? 

UniOulu Ambassadors will attend a training programme. In the academic year 2020-2021, training sessions are organized online. After the sessions, you will feel confident in your role as a UniOulu Ambassador. All sessions can be attended online. Some training sessions will be organised over the weekends and after office hours to minimize coinciding with lectures. 

You will stay connected with the marketing team, team leaders and fellow ambassadors throughout the academic year

In addition to the training sessions, you will regularly meet with UniOulu Ambassador team leaders and the University of Oulu applicant marketing team. In the academic year 2020-2021, the UniOulu Ambassador team leaders are Manushi Bashini and Mai Truong. The UniOulu Ambassador Programme is coordinated by the University of Oulu Marketing, Communications and Public Affairs.
