Agriculture graduate John Waters came from Kildare to study in Waterford as he considered it to be the best agriculture course offered in Ireland

"I chose to come to Waterford from Kildare because it looked like the best of all the Agriculture courses that are on offer in Ireland. For me, it was as close as Dublin would be, but there are a lot more benefits in Waterford. For one, the entry requirements in Waterford were a slight bit more achievable for me. 

I moved down to Waterford and one major thing I noticed is how close knit Waterford and WIT are. The class sizes are smaller which means that everybody gets to know each other so well.  The practical work was very hands on. We undertook things such as grass walks, machinery identification, feed and grass knowledge, animal assessments and tractor driving. 

I am currently working on my farm at home. What I learned in WIT and the knowledge I gained helped me with my current work. 

Going to college in Waterford was a great experience and I would highly recommend it!"
