Alfonso Freiria del Portillo, from Uruguay, graduated in September from the MSc International Agri-business and Food Chain Management programme.
Here's his experience of studying at Harper as an international student:
Why did you decide to come to Harper Adams University?
Because it’s ony of the best univerities in agriculture in the UK, also it’s very well ranked. The opportunity to come here and study in English was really challenging for me.
How has the experience been?
The whole experience is amazing. The infrastructure that Harper has. Also the professors and how they can help you to improve is very good. As well as life in general. You can enjoy the sports, or the social life in general. And the best part is you can make ties with different people from around the world and I think this is the most important thing.
What have been your highlights during your time at Harper?
First of all the people, the students. The students make Harper great. Of course university life in general. The social life, including the sports. And obviously the course. I’ve learnt a lot of things, that combined with my previous experience mean I’m well prepared for my future.
Would you recommend studying in the UK to prospective international students?
It’s a really good experience to live abroad. To do a Masters course which is very
well recognised in Europe. As well, of course, to improve your English level.
If you come here, you’ll enjoy it alot.
