Master in Organic Farming Alison Goldberger
SRUC Postgraduate Distance learning programmes, attract students from around the globe. Alison who lives in Austria talks to us about her experience so far.
I’m studying the MSc in Organic Farming at the SRUC. I’m Scottish, but live in Austria where I run an organic arable and pig farm with my husband. The course has really helped me in my work as an organic farmer – I’m now confident with crop rotations and understanding soil analysis results. I’ve also learned a lot from the other students in the course, and have implemented a few ideas into our farm from them. The first two years have been really valuable, and I’m currently enjoying putting together my masters project which looks at weed control in organic rapeseed.
