Gunnar Barth BSc (Hons) Leather Technology

Gunnar BarthPursuing a life in Leather

“I chose the University of Northampton to continue studying leather, following a three year Tannery Apprenticeship in Germany. My studies have enabled me to further develop my transferable skills, as well as my ability to network and to work efficiently.

Internships through the course

These attributes enabled me to secure an offer of a summer internship at Aston Martin Lagonda headquarters – this was really rewarding and I hope to work there again in the future.”​
