Production Units

The Diploma in Agriculture runs over a minimum of three years of full-time study. The course consists of about 60% theory and 40% practical. In the third year the students are expected to work more independently. They must apply and integrate the knowledge and skills obtained during the first two years in the compilation of various projects, seminars and reports. The students obtain practical experience on the so-called mini farms. A mini farm is a production system of at least 50 breeding animals, which is used by the students to farm for that year.
