Admissions to Master of Science in Environment and Natural Resources
The steps to the Master's programme in Environment and Natural Resources
Step 1 - Bachelor's degree
You need a Bachelor's degree in environmental sciences, a related field or an equivalent degree.
The admission of persons with university degrees from areas outside the subject area is examined on a dossier basis and may be subject to conditions.
Step 2 - MRU and research unit
You need to decide on one of our three Master Research Units (MRU). Within the MRU you choose a research unit in which you complete your Master Studio (Project Work 1 and 2 as well as Master Thesis). These decisions change the structure of your studies and must therefore be made at the time of registration.
Information on the possible subjects and research units can be found on the website of the respective MRU. Please note that the places for students in the research units are limited. It is recommended to register as soon as you have made your decisions.

Step 4 - Suitability assessment
After the registration, your documents will be examined and you will be invited to an interview, which will focus
- on the admission to studies (specific professional competencies for the selected MRU, study ability and motivation).
- necessary requirements in the case of Bachelor's Degree in unrelated fields l
- language competence in English and German (for at least one of the two languages level C1, for the second level sufficient knowledge)
This assessment decides on your definitive admission to the Master's programme. About your final admission you will be informed as soon as possible after the assessment.
Step 5 - After the admission
After you have been admitted to the study programme, you work out your individual study plan together with your tutor in the weeks before the start of your studies. In addition to the possible optional modules, you decide to strengthen your methodological competence by choosing a research profile, either scientific or socio-economic, in order to be able to analyse scientific questions from an appropriate perspective. You will then have time for individual preparation. The course begins in September in calendar week 38.
