International Student Ambassador Program

International Student Ambassador Program

The City of Hobart International Student Ambassador Program creates opportunities for international students to volunteer their services at key City of Hobart formal events and gain knowledge of Hobart, learn about local culture, break down barriers, and promote social inclusion.

The Program was launched in 2015 by the City of Hobart, in partnership with the University of Tasmania. Thirty-nine ambassadors from China, Syria, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Pakistan, India, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Vietnam, Colombia, Indonesia, South Korea, and Nepal have participated in the program since. The Ambassadors have increased their knowledge of Hobart, improved their public speaking and communication skills, developed networks, run their own projects, and built new friendships.

The City of Hobart has gained a better connection with international students, strengthened its partnership with the various educational institutions, and learnt more about each Ambassador's cultural background and experiences in Hobart.
