Encourage students to get involved with the many opportunities UQ has to offer

The UQ Employability Ambassador program is a great way to get involved and promote the many amazing opportunities that students have while studying at UQ. UQ Employability Ambassadors are volunteers who have participated in programs offered by UQ and now want to share their enthusiasm with others.

If you have participated in the UQ Employability Award, UQ Abroad, undergraduate research, received a UQ Employability Grant or held an internship, work experience or volunteer role, you can apply to participate in the UQ Employability Ambassador program.

Why you should participate

The program provides a valuable professional development opportunity where you can share your passion for global experiences, research, employability or leadership activities. Ambassadors will have the opportunity to:

  • Share your passion and experiences with the UQ community
  • Network with other outstanding student leaders and volunteers
  • Enhance your resume with leadership, event planning, and promotions
  • Build your communication skills by presenting at public events
  • Receive invitations to exclusive events and training
  • Receive recognition for participation through the UQ Employability Award program
  • Attend a thank you reception upon completion


Ambassadors will be asked to fulfil the following duties as applicable to their experience and expertise:
