By being an ambassador, you get to help future students make the right choice of study program and university by sharing your experiences and insights of studying here. As an ambassador, you get to help in several ways. For instance, ambassadors do takeovers of our Instagram, write blog posts, take part in Open Day and volunteer to be part of our list of students to chat to, if prospective students want to know more about student life. Furthermore, you get to add your student ambassador experience to your CV.

We invite new ambassadors to a welcome meeting where we tell you about the program, get to know each other and provide you with a free meal. All ambassadors are invited to meetings through the semesters, and as a little extra, we make sure to gift you some Aarhus University swag in a gift bag.

We normally take in new ambassadors by the beginning of the semester. If you want to join, please email the ambassador team at ambassador@au.dk, and share your name, study program and a little info on yourself. We look forward to welcoming you!
