Moving away from home is a daunting prospect, especially when that move involves hopping on a flight and jetting off to a whole new country 

Luckily, our Welsh universities have hundreds of friendly volunteers on hand to help you settle into your new home, find your way around, and give you the warmest of Welsh welcomes (we're renowned for our friendliness, you know!?)

We caught up with a handful of these volunteers also known as Student Navigators at the University of South Wales, who shared their highlights and favourite moments of being a student ambassador. 

These lovely people and so many more are ready and waiting to make you feel at home. So, are you ready?
