The Euroforester is an MSc programme conducted in an international environment, preparing you for a career in the forestry sector.
The forestry profession faces profound changes. Forests are no longer regarded simply as "factories" for wood production. The outputs from forests have become and keen concern for the whole society - nationally, regionally and globally. Consequently, the forester of today must have a wide perspective and be capable of working in an international environment.
Across borders, countries share environmental and social issues; likewise, forest industries and markets increasingly expand across national borders.
The focus, in the Euroforester MSc programme, is on sustainable forestry in the Baltic Sea region - the hub of the European forest resources. Countries in the region share comparable biological conditions, but vary markedly in forestry practices and traditions.
To respond to these needs, "Euroforester" has been developed in cooperation between 13 forest faculties in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Ukraine and Sweden.
The network has since the start 2000 expanded, and now we also cooperate with Universities in Uruguay and China.
This constitutes an excellent setting for international studies in forestry. In addition to acquiring up-to date knowledge, students will form their own international network with the peers and the international teacher team.
