Being a Student Ambassador is a fantastic experience and an opportunity to earn a scholarship for your studies
This week we congratulated our Student Ambassadors, who visited schools, gave presentations about SSE Riga to high school students and participated in education fairs, Open Door Days and other recruitment activities in 2018/19.
With their help, SSE Riga has recruited more than a hundred of its current students from 65 different schools in 8 countries. To recognise the most active Student Ambassadors and their effort, SSE Riga awarded two students with a 750 euro scholarship to cover part of their tuition fee. Congratulations, Jānis Reinis Beikmanis and Valters Apfelbaums! Another scholarship winner will be announced in December when we know whose presentation attracted the TOP first year student.
This season's Ambassadors selection process will start next week, and we hope that the majority of Year 1 students will apply to contribute to the recruitment of next years’ cohort of SSE Riga students. It is a great experience to learn leadership and presentation skills through real experience, visiting new places and meeting daring youngsters like yourself. We have improved the Student Ambassadors programme and implemented new opportunities for the participants. Detailed information will be sent out to students on Friday, September 6th.
Our experience shows that most prospective students rely heavily on current students’ referrals or “word of mouth” therefore we hope that freshmen will be actively involved. Become a Student Ambassador!
