Study UK work experience for Hong Kong students

British Council Hong Kong is looking for student ambassadors to work with the Hong Kong office from mid-June to August 2024. It is aimed at Hong Kong students aged 16 or above (by 15 June 2024) who are currently studying in the UK. 

Roles of the student ambassadors 

The ambassadors will work with the Education team for the duration of the contract period to promote the work, life and opportunities that come from studying in the UK. They will provide a wider perspective of studying by sharing knowledge and experience with Hong Kong students, encouraging greater participation and awareness of UK education. Their participation includes but not limited to assisting pre-departure briefings, and in preparing media articles and interviews. There may also be some ad-hoc tasks to perform for the education team. It is necessary to work on the following four days: 6-7 July 2024, 17-18 July 2024 and 17-18 August 2024. 

The programme is contract based with a fixed stipend and working period, and would be highly beneficial for students’ professional and personal development.
