Brisbane International Student Ambassadors are selected by government-related organisation to represent for around 75,000 international students in this city. Their main work is sharing real-life Brisbane stories to their home country networks by social media and encouraging them to study in Brisbane.
There are 40 International Student Ambassadors from more than 30 countries this year and I am the only Taiwanese and definitely appreciate that I can be a member of this team. This blog will share the information about applying to this program and the experience of attending appointment ceremony.
First, the application for this program is usually available at the beginning of year and official organisation will inform selected students to be interviewed in March. After finishing interview, the result will be released soon and a new team now already appears. The only requirement for this program is that international students must at least have one more valid studying year after becoming an ambassador. Hence, if you are also an international student and interested in this program, just pay attention to “Study Brisbane” or “Choose Brisbane” at the end of every year.
Appointment ceremony is the first event that all Brisbane International Student Ambassadors participate in. To be honest, I have never expected that I can meet Lord Mayor of Brisbane when I study in Australia. It’s a really special memory for me and I have also made a vlog for recording this amazing moment.
