“I have loved working at the University of Northampton and being able to talk about my university perspective. Through work, I was able to make friends with people who study a range of courses and are in different years to me. This opportunity has built my confidence and enhanced my communication skills. I have enjoyed how flexible the hours are and how supportive the University is. They are continuously making my role of student ambassador more and more enjoyable.” – Zarrin, second year student studying Biomedical Science.
