Start your adventure

Fancy a trip to Australia? What if you could improve your sheep shearing skills or get stuck in on one of the 2.2 million farms operating in the United States of America.

Whatever your dream, it could become a reality as Farmers Guardian is once again looking for the Agricultural Student of the Year.

The competition – the only one of its kind in the UK – is offering one student the chance to choose a seven, nine or 11 month work placement in the USA, Australia, New Zealand or Canada. The prize includes flights, insurance, visas and accommodation – the winner will be placed with a farming family.

The exclusive work placement, worth £3,000, is being provided by AgriVenture, the international organisation responsible for helping more than 30,000 young people embark on a trip of a lifetime.

The competition is open to all agricultural and horticultural students in the UK and Northern Ireland and aims to recognise young professionals ready to further themselves in their chosen career.

Whether you decide to pursue a completely different job or use the opportunity to further your career through a sandwich placement or post-graduation – the programme will be tailored to ensure you achieve maximum impact to help you achieve your future goals.
