One thing I enjoyed most about my course was the opportunity to attend the 16th International Students Summit in Tokyo with a classmate. I made so many friends from top agricultural universities and I am sure we will be working together in the future to solve major agricultural challenges. Ming Chua
We collaborate with industry, government agencies and universities worldwide to offer diverse education and research programs and forge meaningful partnerships with organisations to strengthen their capabilities and achieve solutions.
Students of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (SNAGS) is a faculty society for students studying in the associated degrees of Earth and Environment, Agricultural and Resource Economics and, Animal and Plant Biology. Several events are held throughout the University year to allow students to socialise with their peers, and develop contact networks within the industry.
