Each year CAFRE students are given the opportunity to compete for a place to study in the USA as part of their Degree studies.

This summer two Loughry students have been successful in being awarded the opportunity to study at Michigan State University (MSU).

Alize McColm from Larne and Claire Wilson from Markethill will be heading off to pastures new to spend the ‘fall semester’ sampling academic life at MSU. Both students are currently studying on Loughry’s Honours Degree food courses and this experience will give them the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and experience at one of the top research universities in the world.

This is an excellent opportunity for the two students to study a range of exciting subjects, and to develop the personal and professional skills that are the key to success in the agri-food industry.

These two very excited students cannot wait to get some ‘independence!’
