Published: 20 March 2018

With pride, the Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre in Alnarp presents an report named "The MSc programme EUROFORESTER at SLU- an evaluation with special consideration of external scholarship agreements.

This report presents the first part of an evaluation of the Euroforester MSc programme at the Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre (SSFRC), Faculty of Forest Sciences, SLU. It contains a description and analysis of the programme itself, including student statistics and courses, while the second part will focus on a student survey. This survey will include all students who participated in two or more Euroforester courses between 2007 and 2017, as well as a resurvey of the students from the years 2001-2006, who already had possibility to participate in the first Euroforester graduates survey.

In 2001, the Southern Swedish Forest Research Centre at SLU Alnarp launched a one-year course package in cooperation with several forest faculties around the Baltic Sea. IKEA agreed to finance 20 annual scholarships for students from our Baltic and Polish partner faculties. Since then, Euroforester has developed with new courses, academic partners and scholarship sponsors. However, until today, IKEA remained the main scholarship donor.
