I Don't Have Access to any Faculty or Lecturer, How Else Do I Confirm I am a Student of My School
A letter from a lecturer or a faculty member is key. We need this so we can be assured you are a student of the said University you belong to.
My organisation/association would like to become an Ambassador, Is it possible?
Yes, it is possible for an organization to become an Ambassador. You'll, however, have to pick an individual to be your representative and we deal with the individual as an ambassador from Barter, not the organization as a whole. Do note that the organization has to belong to a University.
Is the Ambassador program open to all students or limited to students from specific universities, and majors?
No. It is a worldwide program for all undergraduate, postgraduate, or master’s students of universities and other tertiary institutions in the world. Your program of study doesn't matter.
I have taken a gap year from school, Can I still apply to be an Ambassador?
Yes, you can apply to be an Ambassador as long as you will be going back to school within the next 6 months.
I have taken a year abroad as an Exchange Student. Can I still apply to be an Ambassador?
Yes, we believe the current students in the university you are as an exchange student can also benefit from Barter.
However, if you are willing to commit to a year as an ambassador then go ahead and apply. You can complete the one year commitment in your home school if you have a few months to complete your exchange program.
Due to COVID-19, I am stuck in another country, away from my School. Can I still apply?
Yes, you can. It is our belief that being an ambassador is not about your physical presence but your influence and ability to tell your friends how awesome Barter is.
What does the application process look like?
First off, you click on the application button on the website and fill the signup form. We will reply to your application with the necessary steps.
If you are shortlisted, we'll send you a congratulatory message and an onboarding date.
We will onboard you and provide you with all the materials you need to be an effective ambassador
I am a Freshman (first year student), can I apply to be an Ambassador?
