Application deadline for full scholarships: February 15

The European Master in Animal Breeding and Genetics (EMABG) Erasmus Mundus Joint Master Degree programme was approved for funding by the European Commission. The EMABG programme is jointly offered by University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU), Wageningen University (WU), AgroParisTech (APT), Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU), Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (UGOE).

The common vision of the programme is to deliver graduates that are experts in animal breeding and genetics, but with different foci, depending on their chosen study track. This will make them suitable for, e.g., managing breeding programmes in low-income countries, conducting breeding value estimations as required by industry, or responding to societal needs to combat climate change or improving animal welfare through breeding. The ultimate goal is to train a new generation of graduates that are fit to respond to current and future needs of the animal breeding sector in the global context.

Full scholarships are available for the programme, covering study, travel and living costs.

Application deadline: 15. February 2019!
