    Ouyang Xin - School of Materials Science and Engineering​​

    ​​​​​​​​​​​I am grateful and honoured to be invited to the Undergraduate Awards Global Summit 2015 as a highly commended entrant in the Chemistry and Pharmaceutical Science category. During the four-days conference in Dublin, Ireland, I was able to meet and share ideas with 150 talented peers from universities all ov​​​er the world. On the first day, upon arriving in Dublin, we went to Iveagh House where the 150 award winners were greeted for the first time. ​The next day, we attended the Colloquium, which is in the guest house of the President of Ireland, Mr Michael D. Higgins​.

    Furqan Akram Khan - School of Humanities and Social Sciences​

    One of the highlights of my trip was visiting the esteemed Farmleigh House which normally hosts state visits by foreign dignitaries. Its elegance was breath-taking, like a mansion right out of a Disney movie, and was the perfect place for robust debate and discussion during our interactions with the myriad of speakers. Thanks to the efforts of the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the URECA division, I was able to take this unique opportunity and attend such a prestigious summit.

    Kho Ruiwei - School of Art, Design Media

    The trip to the Google headquarters in Ireland was another memorable experience for me. We are welcomed by an interactive digital display at the main entrance, which made the experience more interesting. At the Google Headquarters was also where the first UPresent was held this year by the organizers, which allowed for many winners and highly commended entrants to present the submissions to the rest of the attendees. Representatives for local universities were on site as well, and I’ve gotten the opportunity to speak with the university representatives to find out more about scholarship opportunities to further my Masters studies. All in all, the UA Summit has been a wonderful experience and the greatest takeaways from it are the everlasting friendships forged with international attendees as well as the wealth of knowledge received through interacting with the attendees and speakers.​

    Being a Campus Ambassador is a voluntary role and usually requires a commitment of no more than 2 hours/week on average. As a Campus Ambassador, you decide how to increase awareness of the programme in your university or college, on a time that suits your schedule
