Big Day for Loughry Students


MINISTER for Agriculture and Rural Development, Brid Rodgers, was guest speaker at Loughry College's prize day.

College principal, Dr John Spiers, that it marked a very important milestone in the lives and careers of all the students and was a public recognition of their achievements and success during their course of study at Loughry.

"At the outset can I and all the staff here at the college offer you our warmest congratulations on gaining your qualifications and wish you every success as you take up career opportunities within the food supply chain," he said.

In food, 75 full-time and 114 part-time students enrolled last year, an increase of more than seven per cent over the previous year.

At degree level, 36 students will qualify, one with a posthumous Aegrotat Bachelors Degree and the remainder with their Bachelor of Science in Food Technology, seven receiving this award having completed the part-time programme, with 28 studying full-time.

"Once again this year, a number graduating today have successfully advanced from Loughry's National and Higher National programmes reflecting the value of our progression opportunities, and I pay tribute to these students' application, endurance and endeavour.

"In our post-graduate programmes, the courses in communication continue to attract substantial levels of interest with an enrolment last year of 77.

"The Communications programme which is a joint programme offered at Loughry in collaboration with Queen's University Belfast, offers options in either Communications @ Training and Development or in Communications and Change Management.

"This programme continues to equip industry with people who have the leadership and management skills to effect change at all levels within their organizations. …
