Access and Student Recruitment

Durham Student Ambassadors

Apply to be a Durham Student Ambassador (Male-Only) - NOW RECRUITING!

Inspiring Young People to enter Higher Education

Durham Student Ambassadors (DSA) are a group of enthusiastic and committed students who assist the University with key recruitment and outreach activities.

Ambassadors receive a package of benefits and training to ensure they excel in their vital role of representing the University and positively promoting the student experience to prospective students. As a Durham Student Ambassador you will work on a range of activities including campus tours, open days, school visits and Summer Schools and will develop the relevant skills you require throughout the year. This is an exciting new opportunity and ambassadors' contribution will be valued by the University and increase future employability.

Most of our opportunities are paid and can be challenging, varied and very rewarding, ranging from long term programmes to one-off events. Many of the activities involve working with young people, so DSA need to be good communicators with a positive attitude towards Higher Education and be able to represent the University in an appropriate manner.


Only this Durham Student Ambassador recruitment cycle (February 2015) requires applicants to be male as there is currently a shortage of male ambassadors. This is because a large part of the role includes assisting with residential events, involving young people from local schools/colleges, and ambassadors will be required to stay overnight in single-gender shared accommodation with shared facilities. This post is exempt under the Equality Act (2010), Part 1, Schedule 9.
