Student voice and activities

Your college, your way

Your opinions are important to us. We always include our students in decisions about the College. We’ll always welcome you to share your thoughts and ideas.

There are lots of ways to get involved, from completing surveys to volunteering as a course representative. You could even become a student ambassador.

Ways to share your views

Become a Student Ambassador

The Student Ambassador Programme is a fantastic opportunity to:

  • Gain experience in marketing, event management and promotion
  • Undertake a vital role which looks great on a CV or UCAS application
  • Promote City of Bristol College to future students
  • Earn rewards for hours worked.

We’re currently seeking reliable, committed students to apply to join the Student Ambassador Programme. You will receive training and coaching on the role of an ambassador and be invited to assist with a variety of events throughout the academic year.

To find out more, have a chat with one of the team or drop us an email: marketing@cityofbristol.ac.uk
