MSc European Forestry programme

A joint course-based MSc programme run by renowned European universities

MSc European Forestry (MSc EF) is a top class taught masters programme in the field of forest sciences. The quality of our programme was acknowledged by the European Commission, which awarded the MSc European Forestry an Erasmus Mundus status for years 2004-2014.

The MSc European Forestry programme provides you academic education in forestry focusing on the international dimension of sustainable forest management issues. Our programme is an extra dimension to the already existing educational markets in forestry and nature management in Europe. In our programme, European forestry universities collaborate intensively to offer joint courses as well as their existing curricula, based on the knowledge and experience of forest management for which European forestry was the cradle already centuries ago.

We respond to the increasing number of issues in forest and nature management at international as well as national levels, which provide a whole range of new challenges and demands for policy making and management at the national, European and wider international level. The European view on forest management is well founded both in the latest research results as well as centuries of experience.

Our programme welcomes applications from persons who hold a Bachelor's or comparable degree in forest or related sciences. Click on the link on the left to find out how to apply to MSc EF.
