d’Overbroeck’s has always welcomed students from around the world to study in Oxford alongside our UK students. Our Friendship Ambassador Awards, created in 2017, celebrate the achievements of students around the world wanting to join our International Section for our IGCSE Programme.
Friendship Ambassadors are students who add to the life of the International Section. They should enjoy meeting visiting families and representing their countries and the school.
They may have:
- already had positions of responsibility at their school, or
- taken part in competitions or awards abroad, or
- taken part in community or charity work, or
- have a particular skill or talent (e.g. in music or sport)
How to apply
All students need to do is show on the application form that they are interested in a Friendship Ambassador Award by ticking the relevant box on the application form. In their personal statement they should explain briefly what they can offer the school by telling us what they have achieved.
All applicants will be interviewed but the interview can be by Skype. In the interview we will ask students about why they think they would be a good ambassador for the school…
These are generous awards from £1500 to £6000 year are for the first year of a student’s time at d’Overbroeck’s International Section. If you have students who are excited by the idea of studying in the UK and who want to play an active role in school life, this award could be for them.
