This is a volunteer based opportunity designed to assist students in gaining work experience and valuable leadership and marketing skills.

Student Stories

As a Student Ambassador we want you to tell us about your experiences and help new students understand what they can achieve. You might participate in events such as speaker panels to talk about your experiences, help us produce videos and be one of our very own influencers on our social media channels.

Content you can help produce:

  • Short videos: like an Instagram Story, we want you to tell us what you studied, why you chose your course and what your plans are for your career. You can film these on your phone or via Zoom, and we can help guide you through what to say.
  • Photoshoots: we want to showcase how the campus is the heart of the University of Melbourne, so you can show us the facilities, study spaces and coffee spots. We bring professional photographers on campus, but we also love to see your own shots and candid moments that we can feature on @engunimelb or @unimelb social channels!
  • Quotes and stories: write a blog-post style piece on what you do as a uni student. Are you a part of a student club or have you completed an internship? You can find sample stories on the MSD Discover page.

Videos and written stories like this can be a great way to demonstrate your communication skills and get your stories featured on a unimelb domain to showcase your professional experience. You are a part of the editorial process and we want you to share these stories on your network so it’s your voice that matters, but we can help you write it.

We will connect with you either online or in-person for an informal chat about your studies and can guide you through how to produce content.

If you want to produce a profile or have any additional questions, please contact Emily Badge: emily.badge@unimelb.edu.au.
