The Ambassador Program gives teachers and prospective students the opportunity to invite university students to their schools. The ambassadors will introduce the university and describe their personal academic journey. Ambassadors also serve as contacts at career days in school or as guides for prospective students visiting the Hochschule Kaiserslautern.
Want to go to university? If so, what do you want to study? How does a degree course work? What requirements do I have to fulfill?
Before deciding on an education or a career, students are faced with a lot of questions.
As part of the Ambassador Program, two university representatives usually visit students at their school. They make presentations about the university and the courses offered at the three campuses at Kaiserslautern, Zweibrücken, and Pirmasens. They also discuss entry requirements and funding options.
The representatives provide an authentic insight into their experiences and motivations on their journey to their chosen subject, and into the student life.
The schools decide on the organizational aspects of the events. Generally, presentations lasting 45 to 90 minutes seem to be the most effective for pre-university students.
