What is the ISA Program?

The International Student Ambassador (ISA) Program is a volunteer program within UMSU International. It aims to actively engage students, both international and local, with volunteering and leadership opportunities.

Successful applicants will start in Week 4 of the current semester and conclude in Week 8 of the following semester. Throughout this period, they will have opportunities to volunteer in UMSU International events/projects such as Night Market, Festival of Nations, Orientation and other media/publications. At the end of their term and upon completion of the required 30 hours (inclusive of 15 hours of publicity) of volunteer work, ISAs will receive a certificate of recognition.

The program also serves as a possible preparatory stage for students who may wish to become UMSU International Office Bearers (OBs) in the future.

For more information, please refer to the ISA Program Description.
