The College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) invites you to its October Open Days to find out about the excellent courses and careers available in the agri-food and land-based sectors.

Students of all ages study at CAFRE because they’re interested in getting a good job at the end of their course.

The results speak for themselves – on average over 98% of CAFRE’s students are in employment, on a gap year or progress onto further education within six months of completing their course.

If you’re a hands-on type of person who doesn’t want to be stuck behind a desk ALL day, then CAFRE courses, and the careers they lead to, are perfect for you.

CAFRE Open Days are timed to coincide with students completing university applications through UCAS and also with the opening of its own Further Education course applications for students leaving school after GCSEs in June 2018.
