    Anni Ojanpera 2014One day if I can find a job that I am as happy as I am at OBI then that will be amazing. My advice to all the people that get this position is to enjoy, try new things all the time in Oxford and elsewhere in the UK and use this as an opportunity to learn new things all the time in Oxford and elsewhere in the UK and use this as an opportunity to learn new things and develop yourself.

    Kristen Gartside 2014This work placement at Brookes has allowed me time to explore England while giving me so much practical experience working for the university. I feel prepared for the career ahead of me because of this experience and all the things I have learned in just five months. Getting to know the UK and having the privilege to live in the beautiful city of Oxford has also been an amazing opportunity.

    Lynn Zomer 2014For seven months I had the privilege to spend my time within the International Marketing Team where I met and worked together with the kindest people and learned a lot about how it is to work for such a nice university. Also the English culture and the beautiful city of Oxford made me open my eyes and let me discover great new things. I believe that this amazing experience will help me further in my career and I will never forget the opportunity that Oxford Brookes has given me.
