Posted 30 January 2003HARPER ADAMS University College, the UK’s largest, specialist institution of Higher Education for the land and food based industries, is to revisit the Channel Islands this February for the Careers Convention, Jersey.
Harper Adams will visit the island with details of an exciting suite of new courses and application information for the four exclusive Entrance Award Scholarships for students from the Channel Islands.
The University College launched the Channel Islands Scholarships in 2002 because Harper Adams, sympathetic to the rising costs of Higher Education for those studying away from home, wanted to help offset the expense and encourage students to spread their wings.
Four separate Scholarships, each worth £500, are exclusively available to students from the Channel Islands. Richard Jopling, Head of Marketing and Liaison at Harper Adams said: “By offering scholarships to students from the Channel Islands, we think we will be making a vital and positive contribution to help with their travel and living expenses.
“We believe Harper Adams offers students a total rural university experience and are keen to help those who are interested to make the most of that opportunity.”
This year, Harper Adams will launch exciting new degrees in Tourism and Business Management, Rural Leisure Management, Veterinary Nursing and Practice Management, Applied Biology and Retail Management.
To find out more, all you have to do is visit the Harper Adams stand during the Jersey Careers Convention. This takes place in the Great Hall of the Hotel De France, St Helier, between 1pm and 4.30pm and between 5pm and 7.30pm on Thursday, February 13, 2003.
