ARE you waiting for exam-ination results and still unsure which course you want to study in September?
Then consider a food course at the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE). Loughry campus in Cookstown offers a number of food related courses ranging from degrees to Level 3 diplomas.
CAFRE offers honours degrees validated by Ulster University in Food Technology, Food Inn-ovation and Nutrition and Food Business Management, as well as a Foundation Degree in Food Manufacture and Nutrition. So if you have achieved your A-Levels or equivalent qualifications, app-lications are still being accepted for these courses and should be made through UCAS Clearing (www.ucas.com).
If you have completed Year 12 and have four GCSE passes at Grade C and above, including English, Maths and Double Aw-ard Science, a BTEC Level 3 National Diploma is an excellent alternative to A-Levels where you will be studying subjects you are interested in. Applications for these courses are made through the CAFRE website www.cafre.ac.uk
To coincide with the release of results on Tuesday, August 10, and Thursday, August 12, CAFRE’s Education Advisers will
be offering guided tours of the food and student facilities at Loughry campus, Cookstown. To book a place on the tour please go the website www.cafre.ac.uk
CAFRE is renowned for the excellent teaching facilities and
links with industry. Ninety-five
per cent of graduates are em-ployed or progress on to higher education within six months of graduating and they would highly recommend CAFRE as a place to study. So if you are interested in working in a fast moving industry that is constantly changing and using technical innovations to meet consumer demands, a food course at Loughry could be your first step in achieving that goal.
