CBU FOR Curriculum
Master's degree programme (CBU) in Forestry consists of studies comprising 120 ECTS following CBU FOR curriculum below. It takes two years to complete the degree. Each student has a home university where he/she graduates when the studies are completed. (exception: in the double degree option, the students will receive a degree certificate from UEF and from SPSFTU/MSFU).
Our courses are divided into compulsory courses (CBU compulsory courses and compulsory courses at home university), elective courses, applied period and the Master's thesis.
You can find the descriptions of the courses available at UEF in WebOodi by searching a course by its name or course number and in the course catalogue available in WebOodi (Course catalogues>Faculty of Science and Forestry>School of Forest Sciences>Master's Degree Programme (CBU) in Forestry (Joensuu campus).
The study programme of a student is recommended to include at least 24 ECTS of studies with a cross-border element. These studies may include student mobility (also virtual mobility in distance-education courses), jointly organized courses (including CBU compulsory courses), a jointly guided thesis and practical training or a science project abroad.
Double degree option
It is possible to start CBU FOR studies aiming at the double degree (at the end of the studies the student would get a degree certificate from UEF and from SPSFTU or from BMSTU). This would require that the student is accepted by both universities and the personal study plan of the student is accepted by both universities (the study plan has to include at least 60 ECTS in both universities and the thesis has to be accepted in both universities and written in English). Currently, the double degree option is most realisable for Russian students.
Consult the Study Guide and the local CBU FOR Coordinators for further information on the requirements in different partner universities.
