Emily Hughes is now in the final year of Agri-Food Marketing foundation degree at Harper Adams after being awarded the scholarship in 2016 and she has recently completed her placement at Moy Park.
“I first heard of the award at the scholarship fair held at Harper Adams. I was really interested in a scholarship as I knew it would look really good on my future CV and that the extra money would be useful for tuition fees.
“The advisors on the stand taught me about Moy Park as a company and I learned how big it was on a global scale. I was really impressed by the information provided to me and I knew that if my application was accepted, I would be well taught throughout my placement and would meet loads of useful contacts to carry my career forward.”
