Agronomy courses and farm placement advice — overseas students

BELOW is a list of agronomy courses available at colleges in England. I suggest that potential students contact colleges for farm placement contacts in an area that would be convenient.

The other organisation to contact is the International Farm Experience Programme (IFEP), part of the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs, based at the National Agricultural Centre. Phone: 01203 696584.

They deal with exchange programmes throughout many parts of the world.
