Jodie, who is graduating with a BA International Relations, said: “My time at Essex has been an excellent experience both socially and academically. Teaching has been interactive and high quality. The University also ensures that every activity their students engage with, whether it be sports, part-time work, or volunteering, are recognised through the Big Essex Award. I wanted to become a Student Ambassador to be able to communicate all of Essex’s attributes.”

The most fulfilling thing about being an Ambassador, Jodie said, is “being able to provide advice and information for students about their possibilities post-school.”

Jodie will start a Masters degree in European Public Policy at University College London in September.

The doors to Graduation 2016 open on 12 July. 4,691 students will graduate, bringing the number of Essex graduates, since 1964, to more than 93,000.

Each and every one of our 2016 graduates has had a life-changing experience. They have risen to the challenge of developing a research mindset, they have been involved in clubs, societies and volunteering, and they have grasped opportunities.

We can’t tell all their stories but our Graduating 2016 student profiles shine a light on the individual experiences that make the Essex family inclusive, international and inspiring.
