Postgraduate places are opening up soon for those hoping to make their mark in Northern Ireland's agri-food sector.

Courses will be taught in Cookstown at the College of Agriculture and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE).

The master's degree courses, which include an MSc in business for agri-food, are awarded by Queen's University and are tailor-made for those working or entering the agri-food or rural business sectors.

More than 94% of people completing a CAFRE course enter employment or pursue further education six months after graduating. Courses can be completed on a full or part-time basis, one evening per week.

An open evening is taking place on Tuesday June 28 at Loughry Campus in Cookstown from 5-9pm. Information can be found at www.cafre.ac.uk or freephone 0800 0284291.
