I started the course of Rural Estate and Land Management at Harper Adams University in September 2018. I have now completed the first term and just started the third term last week. I feel that I have settled well into University Life and have enjoyed my first term. I am an active member of the shooting club and the Land Management Society and am enjoying my studies.
My name is Katie Bailey and I am 19 years old. I have just started studying Agriculture at Harper Adams University. Before starting this course I took a gap year and worked and travelled for 9 months in New Zealand and 1 month in Hawaii. This was a great experience and I would highly recommend it. I am looking forward to studying agriculture and expanding my farming knowledge.
I have begun my second year of the veterinary course at Nottingham and have moved into my new house with three other girls from my course. I was pleased with all my year 1 exam results, and now feel ready to get back into academic work having had the summer off. I am finding the practical sessions especially useful for this module to help me visualise where everything is within the abdominal cavity, you can’t beat drawing on our lovely vet school cows with chalks to illustrate where the rumen sits. I’m enjoying my house much more than halls and I’m looking forward to continuing with my veterinary education.
