Horticulture student numbers on the rise at Teagasc College
12 January 2021 | 0
Teagasc College recently held a virtual event to promote its courses and studying for a qualification in horticulture.
College principal John Mulhern, along with colleagues Louise Jones, Christopher Heavey, James Brady and Paddy Smith gave presentations on the college courses and the student activities in the Horticultural College.
Attendees of the hour-long debate, which was broadcast via Zoom, were able to participate in the Q&A session towards the end of the event.
It was revealed that numbers participating in horticulture courses at Teagasc College have risen this year and that overall, there is a high level of satisfaction among students.
The college is operating a blended learning format this academic year, whereby students take live lectures online and attend in small socially-distanced groups to the practical events in both the National Botanic Gardens and Teagasc Ashtown.
