Monash Global Ambassador Program

Monash Global Ambassador Program

Our Monash Global Ambassador Program starts in January 2021, and we’re recruiting ambassadors now!

The Monash Global Ambassador Program is a highly regarded learning and leadership opportunity. We have a strong reputation for delivering events that connect students to Monash support services and give them a sense of belonging.

Our ambassadors contribute to our events, and help shape the student experience through a variety of roles and leadership positions within the program. They’re central to our success, and they enable us to deliver a highly effective and holistic student experience. They also play a vital role in ensuring we identify and address students’ needs.

Many of our ambassadors have gone on to secure paid work at Monash and other organisations.


Opportunities

If you’re ready to build your leadership skills, make a positive impact, and inspire those around you, join us!

As an ambassador, you’ll:

  • have direct input into exciting, high-profile programs (led by the International Student Engagement team) that positively impact students
  • support and empower students by connecting them to Monash services, making sure they feel a sense of belonging
  • enhance your employability skills in a real-world context by getting involved in a variety of tasks, including digital marketing, promotions, presentations, and more
  • receive a digital rewards pack that outlines your achievements and contributions
  • join a highly motivated team that values every individual voice, regardless of experience or role title.

You’ll also have the opportunity to progress into leadership roles within the program and develop your skills.

Hemangi:

It’s an inspiring program that really works to give students the support that they ask for, making such a difference in the feeling of acceptance and community with Monash. The team treats each other with so much respect and acceptance, extending that warmth in all of their programs and events so that international students can feel welcome.”

Advaita:

Being an ambassador for a semester and seeing the passion, leadership and dedication the whole team puts forward has inspired me in a lot of ways. This team has become more like a family away from home. It is the best team I have been a part of and I would always love to continue being a part of it.”

Dannika:

The Ambassador Program provides a platform for ambassadors to learn, contribute, develop, and succeed within a team that prioritises excellence, innovation, and belonging. The leadership opportunities, the chance to directly impact student experiences, and the meaningful friendships I formed along the way have established this program as one of my most memorable and cherished University experience.”
