International Students' Officer
The Students Union is run by students, for students and every year, you elect a student to represent all International Students at the University of Northampton. This year you elected Christopher Ibi who is representing YOU from September 2012 - May 2013
My name is Christopher Ibi, a student of M.A. Management Human Resources at Park Campus. The University of Northampton is known for so many outstanding qualities one of which is being a home to many International Students. One of the main reasons I stood for the position of the International Students Officer in the Students’ Union elections is to be a voice for you and act as a bridge between the Students Union and all International Students. I will encourage participation and engagement in all areas of the Student’s Union including the arrangement of events where you will have a chance to integrate with students from different counties and cultures and facilitate an increased involvement with our democratic processes so your voice at Northampton is truly represented.
I have a passion for student life and welcome you all to an exciting time at the University of Northampton. To the old students, it’s going to be a new dawn. To the new students, there will be no dull moments. 2012-2013 will be a year that you will always remember. I wish you every success as you journey into a new phase of your life and career pursuit and I look forward to working with you this year.
