Why I Chose the MSc in Organic Farming by Philip Day

Philip Day has been studying the MSc in Organic Farming since 2018 in order to open up new opportunities,

“I started the MSc in 2018, aged 55 and with many years of organic farm management, with a desire to understand more about organic farming and with the intention of consolidating my knowledge and experience into a recognisable qualification which may then provide new opportunities for me.  I am now in my third year and just starting my dissertation on ‘Significant factors in effective weed control strategies for organic arable crops in the UK’.

The course has been stimulating in terms of content and has given the opportunity to share views and experiences with fellow participants from various backgrounds.  Already I have a better understanding of organics – but there’s always more to learn.”
