Maryella Corden, a past pupil of St Ronan’s College, Lurgan, completed a BSc (Hons) Degree in Food Innovation and Nutrition at CAFRE, Loughry Campus. Maryella says: “Studying at CAFRE creates lots of opportunities to connect with the industry. Through work placements, guest lecturers, visits to businesses you gain valuable insights. Not forgetting about the CAFRE bursaries, scholarships and competitions which are designed to enhance your learning and understanding of the agri-food industry. Now a CAFRE graduate, I have enrolled on the postgraduate Business for Agri- Food and Rural Enterprise course, delivered at Loughry Campus in conjunction with Queen's University Belfast.” If you are interested in studying agri-food – discover CAFRE, Northern Ireland’s specialist agri-food and land-based college.
