students at practice facilities from Aeres University of Applied Sciences at Aeres Farms

Aeres Hogeschool Dronten is a university of applied sciences (UAS) faculty with a wide range of facilities. Students can, for instance, relax in the restaurant, practice agritech in the technology centre or collect information in the multimedia library. All the facilities are modern and up-to-date with the latest trends and developments in professional practice.

Practice facilities

Aeres Hogeschool Dronten has a number of practice facilities where students can analyze and detect various practical issues, from which they can develop new knowledge. In this way, they learn what the correlation and interdependency are of different factors and technologies that influence, for example, the quality of materials, intermediate goods and end-products. Students also work in simulated professional situations, so that they can learn about different aspects, such as research, entrepreneurship, innovation and collaboration.

Student companies

We have some interesting student companies at Aeres Hogeschool Dronten where students can put what they learn into practice. It is from putting theoretical knowledge into practice that you will gain further insight into business operations. As a student, you can get to work on, among other things, the breeding of vegetables and flowers in a greenhouse or taking care of horses at the Paardenplaats. The student companies also create opportunities for training other skills. As a member of the board of a student company, you will, for example, learn to deal with business administrative issues, such as procurement, sales and cost management. Also, you can broaden your knowledge by taking courses or taking part in theme discussion evenings that look into current topics.
