Hunter says: “I am really keen to crank up the international student numbers and global reach of these courses. I would be very keen to encourage a couple of potential Pacific island candidates on to the Masters of Sustainable Agriculture programme. I know that the MSA is eligible for the AusAID Development Scholarship programme and that agriculture and rural development are priority sectors for a number of Pacific countries included on the list of eligible countries which can be found at the link below. I also believe there is still ample time to apply for the 2013 entry.”
