StudyNT Student Ambassadors 2017 graduation

Are you interested in becoming a Student Ambassador for 2018?

We are looking for a team of confident young people who will represent StudyNT with professionalism and that are passionate about promoting international education and this amazing place we live.

The 2017 StudyNT Student Ambassadors have graduated from their program, progressing to be alumni of Australia’s Northern Territory. The twenty ambassadors have learned about leadership, improving their resume, interview techniques and social media. They planned events, attended events, met the Chief Minister, other NT ministers, visited dignitaries and business people and they even travelled to China, Canberra and Hobart as StudyNT Student Ambassadors.

Ambassadors developed their leadership and planning skills at the harmony soiree. The ambassadors planned and managed a booth at the soiree that featured photos and stories. By running and planning the booth they learned to work as a team, meet deadlines, manage a budget, work on their interpersonal skills and they had a great time in the process!

Manfred, from Estonia, who’s studying a Diploma of Leadership and Management at BCA National Training Group in Parap, travelled to Hobart to attend a national conference. He is representing ambassadors on his newly elected capacity on the National Executive Committee of the Council of International Students Australia (CISA).

The event gave Manfred an opportunity to meet people in the international education and training industry, develop his interpersonal skills and he also had a chance to meet the Minister for Education, Senator the Hon Simon Birmingham. 

Manfred said, “It was a great opportunity to tell everybody about what it’s like to study in Darwin - high quality education, lots of employment opportunities and of course there’s a great lifestyle.”

Amy Zhang from China, who’s studying a Master of Public Policy at Charles Darwin University, was awarded the 2017 International Student of the Year Award at this year’s Chief Minister’s Awards for her work in the community as well as her contributions to promoting international education in the Northern Territory. Amy also completed a 300 hour internship with StudyNT.

We are also very proud for our ambassadors that were acknowledged at this year’s Chief Minister’s Awards. A total of three ambassadors were shortlisted for the awards with Amy winning the International Student of the Year Award and Shree Ram Lamichhane from Nepal, who’s studying a Master by Research at Charles Darwin University receiving a special commendation.

To be a Student Ambassador for 2018, we’ll give you the support, tools and training to be successful. The rest is up to you.
