Win £6,000 towards your PhD study by becoming our FIRST FindAPhD Ambassador.

We’re looking for someone who is as passionate about postgraduate study as we are. We want to appoint an ambassador who can inspire our audience to begin their postgraduate study journey by sharing their own through a variety of creative videos, blogs, social takeovers and live Q&As on our social media channels and at our study fairs. If you’re intending to start your PhD study in Autumn 2020, or January 2021 you could be the face of FindAPhD for 2020/21 and motivate the next generation of PhD students?

Why represent FindAPhD?

We’ve been helping students all over the world find their perfect PhD for over 15 years. Not only do we list over 4,500 projects and programmes from universities around the world, we also offer a whole host of advice on our blog (from funding to myth-busting), run social media accounts hosting inspirational and informative video content and the chance to ask us anything, and host study fairs all over the UK, and virtually, to bring universities & prospective students together.

We want our FindAPhD Ambassador to contribute to all of these things by giving the prospective students who engage with FindAPhD the benefit of sharing your real experiences through video content, blogging, social media takeovers and speaking at our events. You’ll also be able to develop your skills in video editing, marketing, copywriting, networking and more!

What are we looking for?


We want you to be confident and enthusiastic in front of a camera and when talking to prospective students and university representatives at our fairs.


We want someone who is a self-starter who loves coming up with their own ideas and new and inventive ways of engaging with people.


Ultimately, we want someone who is passionate about PhD study, the subject they’ve chosen and all aspects of the journey they’re about to go on. We want your passion to help others feel confident on their own journey.

What’s in it for me?

Our chosen ambassador will win a £6,000 cash prize to help them through their studies.

It’s a great opportunity for your CV – you’ll gain invaluable experience working with us, speaking and presenting to large audiences at our events, develop your copywriting, video editing and social media skills, and have your content published to over 580,000 people every month!

Networking opportunities – you’ll get to meet with top UK and international universities, inspire prospective PhD students and give presentations about your experiences.

Access to a popular platform – our website and social media channels have a combined audience of well over 1 million monthly visitors – so you’ll be an authentic source of information and inspiration to a huge amount of people.

A LOT of fun! You’ll get to travel to different places in the UK to speak about your experiences, and produce exciting and engaging content to motivate the next generation of postgraduate students.
