The curriculum covers a wide spectrum of subjects which concentrate around advanced forest biology, technology, management and economics.
The student will also benefit from seminars run by well experienced academic staff. The objectives of the programme are to provide the student with advanced knowledge of the subject covered by the curriculum as well as with modern forestry research methods. Students are required to prepare a master’s thesis and pass a final examination in order to obtain the degree of Master of Science in Forestry (M.Sc.F.)
While in school, students can benefit from a number of international study programmes, like Erasmus, CEEPUS, Leonardo da Vinci programme or Euroforester.
