Structure and study options

The National Forestry Masters Program can be undertaken full-time or part-time, or purely on a professional development (non-degree) basis. The duration of the full-time program is two years. Students with appropriate qualifications and experience can enter the program at 6 or 12 months.

Students enrol through their host universities, but also take courses from other program partners. Many courses are offered as intensive blocks to facilitate access by students from all universities and by busy professionals.

The table below presents an indicative program structure, but each individual program varies to reflect the strengths, foci and location of the university offering it. Check out each university's program through the links found here.
