I have received an offer letter from Cranfield University for masters in Food Systems and Management. How good is the course and the university? Is it worth all the investment by an international student? What about part time jobs and scholarships? As i am waiting for other offers would it be wise to accept this offer? Somebody help me in this.

Cranfield is an excellent university. But the Food industry generally is a dreadful place to work.

Oh thanks but I am from food industrial background. Thank you for the info. But what about the part time opportunities? Any part time jobs available for students in the area?

Cranfield is in a relatively rural setting and so there will be far fewer opportunities for part time work than in many universities in cities

Hi NavaneethPar.

I just replied to you on another thread but can jump in here too!

threeportdrift is right in that we are a very rural university, our campus is actually an old RAF base, hence the airstrip, so it's out in the countryside. It's quite unique in its setting and I find it wonderfully peaceful, but yes it does limit the employment opportunities. Part time work is generally limited to what's on campus, so there is work doing things like Ambassador work like I'm doing now, there are roles doing cleaning in the morning before your lectures, and also some jobs working in the bars and shops on campus, although these are very limited.
There are of course opportunities off campus, if you live in the neighbouring towns of Bedford or Milton Keynes there are lots of shops, restaurants, etc, where you can find part time work, but then you have to consider commuting to and from campus every day, either by bus or car as it is too far to walk and cycling isn't recommended on these roads.
