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?

Because Harper is one of the best agricultural universities in the UK and it is well positioned in the rankings. Also, because Harper is more than just a university it’s more a family. I think it’s just better than the competition. Overall, it’s been a unique, amazing, fanastic experience.

How has the experience been?

It’s been a very nice, lovely experience. The people are fantastic, friendly. It feels like an envi-ronment of friendship. The lecturers push you in assignments to do your best. You get amazing networking. Overall, it’sa fantastic experience.

Would you recommend studying in the UK to prospective international students?

I think studying in the UK is one of the best ways to improve your career. Living wholly here in the UK while improving your English and getting out of your comfort zone. It’s amazing.
