Programme: Animal Production
I chose to study for a European Engineer Degree in Animal Production because I considered that a foreign diploma would be very important and interesting on my Curriculum Vitae. Another reason was to practice my English, to meet new people, discover a new country and add a Dutch diploma to my current studies. The study Animal Production is linked to my previous studies, that I realized in France and England. Great advantage of this study is the six months work placement. With this programme I was able to see different ways and methods used by the Dutch farmers to manage their enterprise.
The company placement that I realized at Schothorst Feed Research, helped me to see and to develop my competences and practical knowledge, but also learned me how to deal with Dutch scientists. After my graduation I decided to continue studying. At the moment I study at the Institute Polytechnique LaSalle Beauvais, currently doing an apprenticeship. At the same time I am studying for a French Engineer Degree in Agriculture and I am working for an International company.
I would advise future students to take advantage of the programmes of Aeres UAS as much as possible. This experience will be a beneficial for their own development but also for searching for job opportunities. Be curious and enjoy your time!
