Week two consisted of induction sessions for my program, and I got to meet my coursemates! There are thirteen MSc Organic Farming and Food Production students, and every last one of us is an international student. We have
4 from America
4 from China
1 from Indonesia
2 from Oman
1 from Taiwan
1 from Trinidad
