Hochschule für nachhaltige Entwicklung Eberswalde


Admission Criteria

The consecutive Master’s study programme follows on from the International Forest Ecosystem Management (B.Sc.) and Forestry (B.Sc.) bachelor programmes and is also suitable for applicants with other bachelor degrees relating to (forest) ecosystems/sustainable natural resource management and socio-ecological system research. This includes, in particular, degree programmes in the following fields:

  • agriculture and forestry, agricultural and forestry sciences;
  • nature conservation, environmental sciences (excluding environmental technology);
  • environmental and resource economics
  • teaching qualifications in the above areas of science, provided both teaching subjects are part of the above areas of science.

Since the course is taught in English, very good knowledge of English language is required. Therefore, all applicants must provide evidence of their proficiency in the English language to meet the admission requirements: European Reference Framework level of B2 or above, or comparable qualifications. Applicants whose native language in their home country is English are not required to submit a language proficiency certificate. Where candidates are still awaiting proof of English proficiency at the time of admission, provisional admission may be granted. The corresponding proof shall be submitted by the time of the second semester re-registration.
