Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Scholarships 2019-21 in European Forestry, Finland (Fully Funded)

MSc European Forestry (MSc EF) is a top class taught Erasmus+: Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree Programme (EMJMD) in the field of forest sciences. The quality of our programme is acknowledged by the European Commission, which awarded the MSc European Forestry Erasmus Mundus status for years 2004–2014 and for years 2016–2019.

Our 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.

In MSc EF, six European top-class forestry universities collaborate intensively to offer joint study modules in addition to their existing curricula. The MSc EF Consortium consists of the following institutions: the University of Eastern Finland (coordinator); AgroParisTech, France; the University of Freiburg, Germany; the University of Lleida, Spain; the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna, Austria and Transilvania University of Brasov, Romania. In addition, Associated Partner HEIs in Brazil, Canada and China and Associated Industrial and Associated Scientific Partners contribute to programme delivery.

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