Becoming an International Ambassador for the York Alumni Association
York’s global network of graduates comprises over 80,000 alumni in more than 170 countries. Hundreds of alumni across the world already provide advice and advocacy, contribute through volunteering, or take a leading role in co-ordinating their regional association.
We are keen to recruit a network of International Ambassadors: graduates based abroad who would like to maintain their connection with York and contribute to our shared success. Being an International Ambassador has a number of potential benefits:
- coordinating activity puts you at the centre of the alumni community
- contributing articles to the newsletter can help to raise your profile
- networking professionally enhances your career prospects
- supporting students has its own rewards.
To be an International Ambassador you simply need to be involved on one or more of the ways summarised below. Choose those which suit you.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be involved in any of these opportunities.
A talk from a professional working in a particular sector can give students a vital insight into specific jobs routes.
Students can benefit from informal contact with an experienced industry professional, especially in the run up to interview.
If you are an alumnus based overseas you may be interested in giving potential applicants an insight into life at the University.
The University is a member of Hosting for Overseas Students (HOST). Its aim is to find volunteer host families who would welcome overseas students into their homes for one-off weekend visits.
