John Barry explains that the BSc (Hons) in Argiculture Science, equips students with the crucial skills and knowledge to work in the Ag Science sector
"The modules on this course are delivered both in WIT and Kildalton contained a good balance of science, agriculture and business disciplines.
This broad blend of disciplines equips students with an excellent set of skills and knowledge.
The course ensures that a wide range of career opportunities are available for example in agribusiness, agricultural advisory/education, research or in postgrad studies.
I found the lecturers to be very approachable and extremely helpful at all times
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at WIT.”
