AFTER three years as a University of Southern Queensland student ambassador, Kristen Lovric is encouraging other students to get involved in the program.
The Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) student said being an ambassador had a positive impact on the student community and her development.
She works with a team of ambassadors to help future students decide on career choices when looking at tertiary study.
Ambassadors also represent the university at events and travel to regional locations.
As an aspiring clinical psychologist, Ms Lovric said she planned to start her masters this year and would use the skills she learnt to develop confidence as well as public speaking.
"Being an ambassador helped with some parts of my training in the psychology degree and I'm sure it will better prepare me for the future," she said.
School Engagement Officer Hannah Redman said all current students could apply to be a student ambassador.
"We are looking for a great mix of representatives who want to share their university experiences with prospective students and can offer advice on programs and how to make the most of life at USQ," Mrs Redman said.
To apply for the 2016 Student Ambassador program, register through the CareerHub at careerhub.usq.edu.au/
Applications are due by Sunday, March 6.
