BENEFITS OF PARTICIPATING IN THE PROGRAMME
All students who are selected to be Transform4Europe Student Ambassadors will receive a certificate issued by the International Relations Department for their involvement which they can include in their CV. Information about participation in the programme will be included in the diploma supplement.
Students, especially those with limited ability to travel, e.g. due to physical disabilities or financial constraints, will have the opportunity to gain international experience without leaving their home country (internationalization at home).
Ambassadors from all member universities of the Transform4Europe alliance will be connected to each other through the Transform4Europe Ambassadors Virtual Network, which will allow them to support each other, exchange best practices, discuss their experiences and address any issues they may encounter during their role as Ambassadors.
