Alumni Ambassadors

IDS Alumni Ambassadors work closely with IDS to improve alumni services, organise events and reunions as well as provide important networking opportunities.

By working with their country alumni, Ambassadors can ensure that Alumni voices are heard. They are there to help former, current, and prospective students, make the most of their IDS experience.

Alumni Ambassadors can help with:

  • Organising alumni reunions
  • Helping alumni to stay in touch and keep up to date with IDS and the Alumni Network
  • Getting in touch with other alumni when you relocate
  • Offering their insight to prospective students, or helping them connect with the right people
