UStudy is proud to have assisted many hundreds of students, student-athletes and academic professionals from the Netherlands and other European nations, to live their dream of studying in the US. We love keeping in touch with our former clients and following their progress during, and after, their overseas experience. From time to time we even continue networking with some of our former clients (or their parents) in spreading the word about the opportunities that are available in studying in the US. These people are our UStudy Ambassadors.
What is a UStudy Ambassador?
Someone who has been a former client of UStudy, who has had a wonderful experience studying in the US – either as a student, a student-athlete, or an academic professional – who would now like to share his or her experiences from time to time with others who are interested in heading to the US themselves, and fulfilling their own dream. Sometimes a UStudy Ambassador may also be an enthusiastic parent of one of our former clients, and in this instance they are able to provide a unique perspective from a parent’s/supporter’s point of view.
What does a UStudy Ambassador do?
The activities that UStudy Ambassadors are involved in are many and varied. Some of these include:
- Independent presentations: UStudy frequently receives requests from high schools, sports clubs and other organizations to do a presentation about studying in the US from a local perspective.
- University/education/vocational fairs: There are many school fairs that are held throughout the year for which UStudy is invited to host a stand and answer general questions about studying in the US.
- Representing US alma mater: At UStudy we also produce several large events such as our annual Go USA Education Fairs where we often invite former clients to represent their US alma mater. Our fair visitors often prefer the opportunity to speak with someone they consider to be a peer, someone they can ask what it’s ‘really’ like, rather than an official representative. *This is reliant on permission being granted from the corresponding US school.
Would you like to know more about being a UStudy Ambassador? Let us know! We offer an attractive financial incentive, and we will be sure to add you to our UStudy Ambassadors Facebook group so you can automatically stay updated about our activities.
Can a UStudy Ambassador attend my event?
YES! Absolutely. Often visitors at an event have a better affiliation with someone ‘just like them’ who has been through the experience that they are interested in. Our UStudy Ambassadors are able to share, first hand, about their personal experience, what their highlights were, tips on what to do and what not to do, and pitfalls to avoid. They provide a valuable and unique perspective to other students, parents and professionals who are their peers.
