First year at University of Lisbon (ULisboa), Lisbon, Portugal

42 ECTS graduate level sub-programme.

The MEDfOR 42-ECTS sub programme by ULisboa aims at providing students with a graduate-level preparation in the full range of disciplines essential to the wise use and management of Mediterranean forest lands.  This sub-programme is designed so that every student whatever the background (not necessarily a forestry one) might a) acquire fundamental knowledge about the Mediterranean forestry chain and b) develop within the whole EMMC the habilitation and the competences needed to address Mediterranean forestry and natural resources management challenges. These are the learning outcomes goals of this 42-ECTS sub-programme. It will provide the knowledge needed for every student to choose the specialization option in the second year that better addresses her/his education and professional objectives.
