What is a Global Ambassador?

UCFB Global Ambassadors will be the voice and face of UCFB as we travel around the world for our Global Sports Summits. Global Ambassadors will be tasked with roles to support UCFB in the planning and delivery of each summit – this means on campus and on location in Melbourne, New York, Atlanta and Toronto. In return, UCFB will provide significant contributions towards the flights and accommodation of the Global Ambassadors to the summits.

All on-campus students are eligible to become a Global Ambassador.

Please note: The deadline to become a UCFB Global Ambassador for the 2020 Global Sports Summits has now passed and all applicants will hear from UCFB soon.

How do I apply to become a Global Ambassador?

Please note, the deadline to apply to become a UCFB Global Ambassador for the 2020 Global Sports Summits has now passed.

What type of tasks will I be doing as a Global Ambassador?

Just like with any team selection, we are looking for a balance of skills and personalities. Tasks will be allocated once the selection has been made, however they will be tailored to the strengths and skills of each student as much as is possible.

How long do I have to apply?

The deadline to apply is 5pm on Friday 4th October.

If I am successful, how much of a contribution will be made by UCFB towards my travel and accommodation?

This will vary from summit to summit – please see below for further details, although will be between approximately £800 and £1,300 per person. This will mean that the vast majority of travel and accommodation expenses for the Global Sports Summits will be covered by UCFB. It should be noted that it is by no means all expenses covered. Due to fluctuating travel costs, successful students may be required to pay any remaining balance on travel and accommodation costs. Global Ambassadors will also need to fund their own food, drink and general spending costs whilst at each summit location. Detailed terms and conditions will be communicated once selection has been made to ensure that Global Ambassadors know exactly what their financial obligations for each summit are.
