Student Blog: Harry - BTEC Level 3 in Agriculture

25 Feb 2021 | College

I chose this course at Bishop Burton College as it suited my needs the most, with the balance between theory and practical work meaning we can learn why and how things are done.

For me Bishop Burton was the obvious choice, with its wide range of courses there is a course for anyone. Furthermore, having visited the college numerous times on the open days, the college felt right for me.

College is very different from school. You are allowed to work independently to perform your own research for the tasks. However, this doesn’t mean that help isn’t available, whenever required the tutors are always happy to help.

My favourite part of the course is crop production, this lesson allows me to expand my knowledge of the way crops are produced, and the challenges faced by modern day farmers.

Being a second-year student at Bishop Burton means I have had to look towards the future which for me I am hoping is university. Bishop Burton has provided a perfect base for this.

One of the things I wish I knew before coming to Bishop Burton was the strong relationship between students and the tutors, this helps to keep the lessons engaging and enjoyable. In addition, because the people on your chosen course have similar interests it means making friends is easy.

My favourite facility at Bishop Burton is the Skills and Technology Centre, this combines both theoretical learnings with practical. It has space for theory while never being too far away from the practical side of the subject.

As a first-year I used the free bus service to get to and from Bishop Burton, this meant I could access college easily without having to rely on others to get to and from college, this was another deciding factor when choosing to attend Bishop Burton College.
