Are you interested in an international career? Did you know that the forest-based bioeconomy can provide new sustainable solutions for the future? Would you like to learn about forests and forest management in six European countries with a cohort of students coming from all over the world?
MSc European Forestry (MSc EF) is a top class taught double-degree Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Programme (EMJMD) in the field of forest sciences and is one of the first EMJMD programmes that has been accredited according to the European approach for quality assurance of the joint programmes. The quality of our programme is also acknowledged by the European Commission, which awarded the MSc European Forestry Erasmus Mundus status for years 2004–2014, 2016–2019 and 2019-2023.
The programme is a two-year interdisciplinary programme that provides academic education in the field of sustainable resource management with an emphasis on current bioeconomy issues. MSc EF offers a new approach to forestry and nature management markets and it connects the increasing number of forest-related issues with a European dimension at international as well as national levels.
The objective of the MSc EF programme is to educate professionals who have a thorough understanding of a sustainable forest bioeconomy as well as the European business culture. The curriculum is specifically designed to take into consideration the needs of potential employers and therefore our graduates are highly valued by national and international agencies, governmental bodies, NGO’s, research institutions and timber, paper and pulp enterprises.
