The Master of Forestry (MF) is a course-based degree program offered as part of a dual-degree partnership with other European and Canadian Universities: TRANSFOR-M (Transatlantic Forestry Master). This partnership is a unique course-based educational experience, which provides MF students with the opportunity to explore Forestry both in Europe and Canada.
Admitted students register in the MF program at UBC for a two-year period. Within that timeframe, one year is spent in Europe completing degree requirements at the chosen partner institution, and the second year is completed at UBC-Vancouver completing the MF degree requirements, resulting in conferral of two separate Master’s credentials.
Each UBC TRANSFOR-M student will receive upon completion of the program: - the UBC Master of Forestry (MF) degree;
and one of the degrees offered by our European Host Universities: - Albert-Ludwigs-University Freiburg (Germany): Master of Forest Sciences - Bangor University (Wales, UK): MSc Agroforestry or MSc Conservation and Land Management or MSc Environmental Forestry - University of Eastern Finland (Finland): MSc Agriculture and Forestry
Students will work with TRANSFOR-M UBC and European Host University Liaison Officers to develop a learning plan that will outline courses to be taken during the 2-year program. Each student will pay the UBC MF tuition fees for two years, but will receive a tuition fee waiver at the Host University in Europe.
