The selected students study the first two years at Freiburg “Waldwirtschaft und Umwelt” The third year they study in Canada and then finish the last year after returning from Canada at Freiburg. For the preparation for the studies abroad special preparation courses are offered.

The study program abroad offers the opportunity to broaden and deepen forest science. Besides general language skills the student gets familiar with technical terms in language classes even before travelling abroad. In addition a course on “Forestry in Canada and Germany a comparison” is offered.

Teaching in Canada is in English. The successfully finished courses are taken into account (60 ECTS for a full one year study program) and are accepted as one year equivalent in a Master program, so that a master degree can be awarded after one more year of studies at Freiburg.
