Two of The University of Queensland’s (UQ’s) brightest agricultural minds have been awarded the prestigious Bell and Bryan medals for 2015. The medals, presented by The Ag Institute Australia and the School of Agriculture and Food Sciences, commemorate two of Queensland’s most influential agricultural figures Dr W. W. Bryan and Arthur F. Bell.
The School of Agriculture and Food Sciences is offering new undergraduate programs in 2016: Bachelors of Equine Science, Sustainable Agriculture, Veterinary Technology and Wildlife Science. Those students in the existing Bachelor of Applied Science program are able to transition to these degrees if they choose to do so.
Mr Laurence Crawley from the Maria Vasas Foundation recently visited the Equine Unit at UQ Gatton. He is pictured with Poppy Sibthorpe and Tracey Fischer, both recipients of the Maria Vasas Foundation Equine Science Honours Scholarship. The SAFS Research herd is generously supported by the Foundation.
There are many scholarships open at this time of year for undergraduatae and postgraduate students. It would be a shame to miss an opportunity. Please check the SAFS, Faculty of Science and UQ Scholarships pages.
