Student Spotlight

Hannah Peters, Agricultural Management BSc (Hons) Top-up

I chose UCS because I didn’t want to move away from home to study, but still wanted to gain a higher education qualification. I like the fact that I can work on the family dairy farm while completing my degree, because contact time is focused on two days per week.
