International Student Ambassador (ISA) Program

Do you feel that your life as a tertiary student only constitutes assignments, tutorials and lectures? Do you want to expand your social network as well as the horizon in your Melbourne Experience? Are you interested in gaining some exposure in leadership roles and event/project management? If your answer is `yes’ for any of the questions above, UMSU International would like to invite you to register for our International Student Ambassador (ISA) program.

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 have the chance to volunteer for UMSU INTL 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 of service, 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.

Requirements for the ISA Program

All applicants must be students of the University of Melbourne. ISAs have about two semesters to complete their required hours and must be able to commit throughout this period. It is compulsory for applicants to carefully read through the ISA Program Description and declare this before submitting their application.
