What is it like to be a Student Ambassador ?

Prior to starting my studies, I visited an Open Day and was warmly welcomed and introduced to the KLU family. Since that greatly influenced my decision of studying at KLU, I want every prospective student to feel the same. Being an ambassador provides me with an opportunity to warmly welcome and guide future students to a choice they’re happy with and do not regret. Coupled with being able to improve on what input I would have loved to receive while making my study choice, being a student ambassador is the best opportunity to shape my university!

Jonah Rösemeier, Student Ambassador

As a student ambassador, I wanted to provide authentic insights into life at KLU. Visiting open days and staying in touch with students before joining KLU was a valuable experience for me. I can now help prospective students myself while spending time with other ambassadors and having fun at various events.

Fritzi Müller, Student Ambassador

Being a student ambassador is a great experience and gives me the opportunity to share my own experience on- and off-campus with potential future students. Also, you have the chance to not only get involved into many extracurricular activities, but also to socially interact with others whilst participating in one of the many cool events organized by the university and expanding your network. Taking part in Open Days or Student Fairs is a great amount of fun, especially when working in teams. And another great fact: welcoming a new student on campus that you spoke to before at an university event.
