How to apply?

It’s easy!

The International Opportunities Team are looking to re-brand themselves and would like to have a bold slogan that would capture students’ attention. The slogan must evoke the concept of internationalisation and be effective for both students from Salford interested to gain some international experience and students from abroad who would like to join Salford for a short-term.

You will need to come up with a slogan which you will then need to tweet. Don’t forget to tag our account @UoS_IntOpps and use the hashtag #InternationalStudentAmbassador. If we (and the Twitter population) like your idea, you will be shortlisted for an interview! So, get your friends to like your tweet as well! And don’t forget to follow us to receive updates on the status of your application.

Remember: it must be bold!

Deadline to apply: Wednesday, 1 May.
