Postgraduate programme admission criteria

The graduate programme lasts 1.5 years (3 semesters). We welcome the graduates from EU (including Polish citizens) and outside of EU, who graduated first degree programmes such as Bachelor (BA or BSc.) in forestry or similar field.

1. Candidates applying for admission into a postgraduate programme in a field that differs from their undergraduate studies must first earn at least 50% of the total number of credits available in the core and elective subjects included in the corresponding undergraduate curriculum. These candidates must submit an undergraduate diploma supplement showing all the core and elective subjects they covered during their undergraduate studies.

2. A candidate not meeting the requirement set forth in section 1 above may be asked to attend paid courses in such subjects as they need to cover in order to meet that requirement. However, this option will be only available when the number of such make-up courses is no higher than five. The fee charged for participation in the make-up courses will be equivalent to the fee charged for repeating the relevant course within a full- or part-time undergraduate programme, as published in the Rector’s Regulation valid at the time.
