Student Ambassadors

Speak to a student

Our speak to a student team is made up of students from a range of courses. Get to know our students here and to ask a question

Our students are available to chat to you about their student experiences at Teesside. If you can’t see a student online who is studying the course(s) you’re interested in, don’t worry – you can chat to any of our students about any of our courses. If you’re not sure which course you’re interested yet that’s no problem, you’re welcome to chat to our students about any questions you may have and they can tell you all about their journey to University.

Please head to our main chat if you have an admissions query.
