Three degrees opportunity

Wednesday 18th May 2016

THOSE looking for a career on the land are urged to apply for a £1,000 towards their studies.

The money is being offered by the Kent County Agricultural Society (KCAS), which will support three degree students from Kent for the next three years. But applications need to be in by May 31.

So, if you will be aged 18 to 25 when you start your full-time land-based studies in the UK, you can apply for help towards your tuition fees, accommodation, living expenses or equipment.  

Students may apply for each year of their degree course, or for the remaining years if they apply part-way through a course and are living in Kent.

Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed in June and notified by the end of July.

Apply online at

Conditions apply, including being resident in Kent prior to starting your course.
