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
  • Get paid for the hours you work!

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.

Clubs and activities

Across the academic year there will be events held by the SU for all students both online and in person.

All students are able to host approved events on behalf of the SU; you can do this by approaching the Activities and Events Officer or the SU staff.

Do you want to make friends or develop a new hobby? We highly encourage students to create and set up clubs through the SU for access to College resources and to the SU’s budget. You can do this by contacting us via the SU website or by email:

We also have a community apprenticeship programme run in partnership with Envision.  Other programmes that might be of interest are Future Quest, Access to Bristol, Nuffield Education and On Track to Bath.
