Students have to study at Lincoln University for 1 semester:

  • You have to take 30 ECTS of LU Master's courses (= 3 LU-units level 600; 20 LU credits = 10 ECTS)
    • ERST 630 (sem 1) or 636 (sem 2) - compulsory

     

    • 1 elective course in your field of specialisation

     

    • 1 research course: this component could be a specific research related course from the LU Calendar such as a research placement, research essay or a methods course. Alternatively it could be recorded as an unspecified research activity equivalent to 20 LU credits (= 10ECTS) undertaken with your co-supervisor (recognized at LU by a 'certificate of proficiency")

  • Additionally you will get 10 ECTS for the co-supervision of your thesis (called "dissertation" at LU)


Requirements

Students have to complete three modular units (Master’s courses – level 600, each 10 ECTS), including

  • one compulsory unit related to the main component Fundamentals of natural resources,
  • and two elective units related to the main component Specialisations in thematic fields.
    At least one of the elective units should be related to the topic of the master thesis.

Please check the currently valid curriculum to find out which courses you have to take at LU.
