International Ambassador Programme


words for hello in different languages

Starting University and moving country can be a daunting prospect. Within the College of Medical and Dental Sciences, we want to help make this transition easier for you, by allowing you to connect with our graduates and alumni through our International Ambassador Scheme.

The International Ambassador scheme builds on the links we have with over 25,000 alumni in over 100 countries worldwide. The scheme allows you to find out more about life at the University of Birmingham and ask general questions to alumni who have gone through similar experiences from countries around the world. 

To contact your nearest ambassador and find out more about them, view their profile below:
