I really enjoyed my degree-I did a double degree in agriculture and law. I loved how enthusiastic the teachers were to help me understand the links beteeen the two and fostered my genuine interests in both areas. I enjoyed being on campus as I could dedicate my self to my degree and didn't have to balance it with other life

The course has already provided me with more knowledge of the workings in agriculture than I’ve learnt in an entire life on the land. Due to this I cannot recommend the course enough to people with a passion for agriculture that want a degree in consultancy or the like.

The course was a good one, with UNE leading the way in online learning. Online learning has its challenges, especially with such a practical subject as agriculture. Without a background in Ag or an ability to immediately apply/utilise the theory, it is difficult to retain.

Online teaching was well delivered in almost all courses. The intensive schools are a great learning opportunity and accommodation at the colleges is easy, convenient and affordable.

I have completed my bachelor degree in Agriculture back home (Nepal). Here, the course curriculum is so poor for Masters level. It is only expensive and the degree in hands worth nothing.
