This article will inform you of Student Speaker Opportunities. 

Student Speaker Opportunities – July 2018

There is an opportunity for some of those eligible to attend graduation in the summer 2018 to address colleagues, friends and families at the graduation ceremonies.  You will be speaking on behalf of your fellow students, but you can share some of your own experiences to convey what it has meant to you to be part of the University of Portsmouth community.  It’s also a great opportunity to thank those who have supported you throughout your studies.

The planning, practice and delivery of the speech require commitment and courage, but this is a fantastic way to both inspire your fellow students and demonstrate personal and professional development to potential employers.

We have one student speaker each ceremony representing the students attending that ceremony.

The application process couldn’t be simpler…

Applications open on Tuesday 2 January 2018

Email us at giving:

  • your name
  • student id number
  • course and
  • some information as to why you think you would be an ideal candidate

Applications close on Friday 9 March 2018 (midnight*)

*any applications received after this time may not be considered

The selection process will then take place and students will be informed of their results by Friday 6 April.

There will be 2 workshops to attend in late April/early May (dates to be confirmed), which will help you to present yourself confidently and professionally.  

What previous Student Speakers have said:-

"I can't believe how supportive everyone was and how much they liked it!"

"The whole experience has been life-changing for me!"
