Being an Ambassador: Who can apply?

If you are a current student at UFS who has been here for at least 2 years, you qualify to be an ambassador. Current international students who have attended UFS for at least 2 years can also apply to be an ambassador.


All ambassadors are required to complete an Ambassador Training session before being matched with their Buddy. The training will be held once at the beginning of each semester. The training is not optional. The Umoja Buddy Programme is meant to provide an opportunity to promote meaningful friendship and intercultural exchange at UFS. Any inappropriate or disrespectful behaviour will not be tolerated from either the Ambassador or the Buddy. If any inappropriate or disrespectful behaviour is reported, the participant at fault will no longer be permitted to participate in the programme.
