Student ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are current students who share their experiences of being a student at open days, career expos, campus tours and presentations.

Alwyn McCallum

Student ambassador

Skinny dipping in the Avon River – that's Alwyn's recommendation for what someone should do on their last day in Canterbury. Given that his goal is to head overseas to work (as a racing engineer after finishing his mechanical engineering degree), we look forward to seeing him take his own advice on his last day here.

Raymond Bachert (Connor)

Student ambassador

Connor's dream job would be to work as a designated medical astronaut on a mission to Mars but he also has more down-to-earth goals. When he completes his Bachelor of Nursing he'd like to join the Royal New Zealand Army Nursing Corps to assist with Antarctic missions and overseas peacekeeping initiatives.
