Arcada's Ambassador Programme is for you who are proud of Arcada as your choice of University of Applied Sciences (UAS) and want to share your experiences of studying at the UAS with student prospects.

As a student ambassador, you play a key role in promoting our degree programmes, and the benefits of being an ambassador are many. Our ambassador programme includes both national (students studying in Swedish-language programmes) and international students (students studying in English-language programmes) at Arcada. All ambassadors commit to the ambassadorship for a full academic year.

What does Arcada's student ambassador programme entail?

Arcada’s ambassadors are involved in welcoming student prospects (potential new students) and answering questions about study life at the UAS and in Finland. We always strive to engage a diverse group of bachelor and master students. The aim of the programme is to attract new applicants to Arcada and to get them to accept their study place offer upon admission. At the same time, as a student ambassador, you will develop several skills and get to know students from different parts of the world.

Why should I become a student ambassador?

The benefits of being an ambassador are many. You get:

  • a unique opportunity to influence Arcada's student recruitment and learn about marketing

  • to sharpen your presentation skills and/or social media skills

  • to develop your team building skills

  • to expand your professional and social network

  • work experience, which is guaranteed to be appreciated by future employers

  • an ambassador certificate at your own request

  • a 100 euro retainer and one Arcada merch item.

What am I expected to do as a student ambassador in practice?

National ambassadors visit schools around Finland and carry out various tasks online. The international ambassadors act mainly as online ambassadors, but they may also receive visits on campus. Below is a list of examples of what a student ambassador does:

  • participates in the joint kick-off event and training during the autumn for national and international ambassadors

  • physical visits to schools and fairs (especially national ambassadors).

The marketing specialists, who coordinate the activities, clearly communicate what tasks you are expected to perform as an ambassador before you commit to becoming an ambassador.

Retainer

As an ambassador, you commit to the programme for one whole academic year. You receive a retainer of 100 euros and one Arcada merch item after completing all the tasks which have been agreed upon beforehand.
