This autumn term, we are recruiting a team of 6 Post-Grad Community Ambassadors, 1 at each of the 6 colleges, with the possibility of further employment.

Here at UAL we have a Post-Grad Community programme active across all of our six colleges. The Post-Grad Community platform aims to build and provide access to a diverse programme of events that target our entire postgraduate taught and research student body.

Ambassadors will assist with our social media channels, help deliver and plan events and act as ambassadors and point of contact for the Post-Grad Community.

"A wonderful opportunity along side your MA study to lead a creative community and get to know fellow students and alumni from all UAL colleges". - 2019 Post-Grad Community Ambassador

This is a fantastic chance for current postgraduate students (both taught and research) to take a more active role in the postgraduate student community at UAL, gain experience and paid work whilst studying.

"It was great to meet different people across the 6 colleges, and to have the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with other students and staff".- 2019 Post-Grad Community Ambassador
