Wonga is from Johannesburg, South Africa and is a student on Hartpury’s BSc (Hons) Agriculture with integrated placement year programme. He has successfully applied to join the Breaking Barriers Oxford Farming Conference (OFC) Scholarship scheme 2023, run in partnership with McDonald's UK and Ireland.
“I chose to study at Hartpury after being offered a Rugby scholarship there. I thought an Agriculture degree would really uplift my farming knowledge and help me back home commercially.
Hartpury is an amazing place with an amazing campus. You really get to know the people around you and make a close family.
As an international student leaving home for the first time, my classmates and tutors are really helping me in my learning and life in general – and sparked my love for agronomy!
The knowledge, real-life experience, and industry contacts I’m gaining at Hartpury are preparing me for my future. I’d love to continue studying and specialise in agricultural law or commercialise my family farm in South Africa – and Hartpury is making this possible.”
