Student ambassadors’ perceptions of university

Student ambassadors’ perceptions of University

Teresa Storey (Health Sciences)

Project overview

This 12 month project will explore the impact being a student ambassador has for students. It will focus on student ambassadors who are involved in outreach work and will examine the impact delivering that role has on the ambassador’s perceptions of their own course and their broader university experience.

The research approach

The project will apply a mixed method approach combining a baseline survey, semi-structured focus groups or listening rooms and follow-up questionnaires.

To understand the link between working in outreach as a student ambassador and perceptions of the student experience will provide really valuable evidence for the benefits of ambassador roles per se. It is hoped the project will provide the foundation work, which may lead to further research into the impact on academic success.
