ABOUT ME - Jonathan Dudley, International Recruitment Officer

Like a lot of my students, I moved to London for my bachelor's degree to broaden my horizon and I have now been here for 12 years! Needless to say, I fell in love with East London's vibrant art and culture scene, diversity and the endless amount of things to do. Moving to a new city not only gave me confidence but allowed me to make lots of international friends, and is one of the reasons why I highly recommend students experience it for themselves.
