The process:

Once our Membership Team recieve all applications, they will the be distributed to each of our Regional Branches depending on your location. From here, respective Branches will follow up with you directly to arrange a time to meet for an interview. They will then make the ultimate decision on who will become their local Student Ambassador. Applications are now closed for 2023 and will reopen late 2023 for 2024.
