In total 170 new students have taken up a first-year programme at certificate and degree level. The new students are availing of the blended learning experience which offers both in class and remote learning.
“After such a difficult past year it’s heartening to see students back on campus in both the Glasnevin and Ashtown locations where we operate,” said John Mulhern, principal of Teagasc College of Amenity Horticulture. “There is a definite flow of young school leavers towards all areas to do with the environment , growing plants for food production and indeed organics where there is huge interest. We are well place to answer this need with our certificate , advanced certificate and degree programme in conjunction with Waterford Institute of Technology.
Teagasc will host a live online event showcasing current students and staff in the National Botanic Gardens on 13 October at 12:30. To tune into the event, visit: https://bit.ly/3kRgFqh
