BSc (Hons) Agricultural Resource Management (Top Up)
Mature student Jonathan returned to College to pursue his passion for working in the farming industry.
During his time at Bishop Burton he enjoyed national acclaim in the Farm Planner of the Year competition, where he secured second place after competing against teams from some of the biggest colleges and universities in the country.
He said: “I first studied horticulture at the College around 20 years ago and had a successful career in that area. I then decided to have a career change, having always wanted to study agriculture.
“It has been really interesting and I have learned a lot. It has been a really good group to be a part of.
“I’m now looking at doing a master’s degree and would eventually like to work in agronomy.”
