Dr. Caroline Elliott-Kingston, Programme Director of the Horticulture degree welcomed attendees to UCD Rosemount Environmental Research Station, a state-of-the-art plant and environmental research facility located on the UCD Belfield campus which supports teaching and learning on a number of programmes within the school.
Fiona Sweeney from the UCD Access and Lifelong Learning centre provided information on alternative entry routes and supports available for students while Aoife Byrne who lectures on the Food and Agribusiness Management programme provided some interesting facts on the importance of Food and Agriculture to the economy.
