Greenmount Campus, Antrim which is well known as the key provider of courses in Agriculture, Horticulture, Land-based Engineering, Floristry and Veterinary Nursing held its Open Day on Wednesday 5 April.

Philip Cashel from Omagh, Co Tyrone who is hoping to complete a course in Horticulture attended the Greenmount Campus Open day and said that he really enjoyed the event especially getting a chance to view the fantastic facilities and to talk to staff. He never knew Horticulture was so diverse ranging from landscaping to green keeping and plant production. He also stated that he was now much better informed about the courses and the course entry requirements.

All CAFRE courses prepare students for a successful career in their chosen industry and make extensive use of the excellent teaching and practical facilities at each Campus.

Thinking College… think CAFRE.
