2015/16 International students leadership and ambassador program alumni

Together, they volunteered for more than 35 events and contributed nearly 6,500 volunteer hours during the program.

Around 100 international students have taken part in our international student leadership and ambassador program, which started in 2013/14.

Every 2 years we recruit new ambassadors and provide an orientation and leadership skills training program. After completing the training, we provide the students with further support to develop and host events that aim to increase international student engagement in Sydney.
