Admission Requirements

If you have completed or are in your final semester of a relevant Bachelor’s degree programme from a recognised/accredited university, you are eligible to apply for the Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters’ in Sustainable Forest and Nature Management (SUFONAMA). Applicants with a Bachelor’s degree in the following are directly academically qualified for admission to the Erasmus Mundus Joint Masters’ Programme:
  • Bachelor’s degree in Agriculture, Biology, Geography and Geoinformatics or Natural Resources from the University of Copenhagen.
  • Professional Bachelor’s degree in Forest and Landscape Engineering or Urban Landscape Engineering from the University of Copenhagen.
  • Bachelor’s degree within the area of forestry, agriculture, biology, geography or related areas from other Danish, Swedish, German, Italian, English or international universities.
The Faculty may also admit applicants who, after an individual academic assessment, are assessed to possess educational qualifications equivalent to those required.

All applications are assessed individually based on its academic content. You can only get an answer to whether or not your degree meets the admission requirements by applying for admission to the programme. The committee does not offer pre-application eligibility assessments of potential applicants’ qualifications.

If the number of qualified applicants within a category exceeds the number of places available, applicants will be prioritised according to the following criteria (listed below in prioritised order):

  • Academic excellence assessed by the applicant’s average grade points achieved in the qualifying Bachelor’s degree.
  • Personal motivation.
  • Relevant work experience within sustainable forest and nature management.
