This programme will run from September to June annually.
What is the role of a Student Ambassador?
The role of a Student Ambassador is to give the real picture about life at IADT: what it’s really like to be a student here from talking about the SA’s programme, their typical day at IADT to student life, clubs/societies and campus facilities.
The role of Student Ambassador usually includes giving presentations, helping at Open Days and Taster Days, conducting campus tours, attending career fairs and school visits. Student Ambassadors may from time to time contribute to IADT’s social media presence by writing posts or recording videos for the IADT website. This year Student Ambassadors played a central role at virtual school visits and at webinars promoting our undergraduate courses.

Main Duties would usually include the following:
- Attend higher education career fairs such as Higher Options in the RDS (September | 3-day event)
- Provide support for Open Days (Autumn & Spring) and Spotlight Sessions (January). This includes talking about courses and life at IADT and guiding visitors.
- Attend school visits with IADT Schools Liaison Officer and/or any other staff member. This involves talking about courses and their experience as a student in IADT.
- Conduct campus tours for schools visiting IADT.
Hours of Work
The hours of work vary. It depends on the number of student recruitment events and the SA’s availability. Usually hours of work are between 9am to 5pm Mon-Fri, however some evening and weekend work may be required during busy times.
