Maastricht University Ambassador team

Do you enjoy studying in an international environment?
Do you like living in Maastricht?
Are you willing to share your experiences with prospective students at promotion events?
Do you have a Dutch Social Security Number and Dutch Health insurance?
Then check the full vacancy and join our UM ambassador team!
At information fairs and other activities for prospective students Maastricht University (UM) is always represented by its students. For this purpose, UM has its own team of ambassadors, consisting of students who are trained in presentation skills and who are informed about all ins and outs of studying in Maastricht. Working for both faculty as well as country teams is a possibility as well! In addition to working during recruitment activities, you may be asked to perform other activities.
We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated students
There are two kinds of ambassador teams:
- Faculty ambassadors (every faculty has his own team)
- All-round ambassadors, Dutch and International (ambassadors who have well-rounded knowledge concerning all UM programmes)
We are looking for enthusiastic and motivated students for both teams, who feel closely attached to UM. The working hours for an ambassador depend on the amount of promotion activities of 'your' team and your own availability. There are busy but also quiet periods of work. You are therefore expected to be flexibly deployable. But of course, your study always comes first!

You are highly motivated about your faculty and able to express this enthusiastically with knowledge of all the admissions and programme details.

University College Maastricht
Department of Advanced Computing Sciences
