Yitian Ma, a 2017/18 Student Ambassador, said “the best thing about being a student ambassador is helping to uphold the UK’s best student experience by being helpful and useful to somebody in need”. Students know how nerve-wracking moving to a new place can be, whether that is a new city, new country or a new university, because many have gone through the same experience.
