Foundation Degree in Agriculture and Technology (part-time) “I am from a Co. Tyrone beef and sheep farm and am studying for the Foundation degree in Agriculture and Technology on a part-time basis. I had previously completed the Level 2 Agricultural Business Operations course and decided to continue studying at a higher level. As part of the Foundation Degree I was delighted to be awarded the opportunity to spend a semester at Michigan State University (MSU) in USA on the Student Exchange Programme. The subjects studied at MSU will count towards my Foundation degree.
On completion of the course I plan to use the knowledge and skills gained to further develop my home farm business, and its also possible to progress to the BSc Hons. course.”
