My RAU experience

Studying at the RAU provided me with a fantastic platform from which to expand both my knowledge base and industry network. The nature of the course with a balance of theory and practical case studies, alongside the opportunity to engage with international students already invested in rural development overseas, meant the MSc provided a diverse and rewarding learning environment.

With thanks to the skills I gained and contacts I made at the RAU, I am now working in an agronomy and technical support role.

The course was challenging with a wide breadth and depth of topics covered, but with the ability to tailor modules to your own aspirations. The highlight for me was the ability to carry out my MSc research in Madagascar, putting acquired skills and knowledge into practice and working with experienced practitioners to further understand the challenges faced in this sector.

What I gained from the RAU

With thanks to the skills I gained and contacts I made at the RAU, I am now working in an agronomy and technical support role for Agrii, whilst also continuing to engage in international rural development through an affiliation with Farm Africa.
