Application Requirements

Master degrees in Agricultural Sciences typically admit students who got their first academic degrees in related subjects such as Agricultural Sciences, Natural Sciences, Biology or other Sustainability-related topics. Depending on the specialization of the degree, a background in Engineering, Social Science or economics may be required. It is best to check on each program’s website. Entrance tests or interviews are not part of the admissions process, you only have to hand in standard certificates (your first degree certificate, a transcript of records). These typically include your CV and a letter of motivation and sometimes work experience or a stay abroad. Additionally, you will have to prove your English language abilities with a language certificate. You may also be expected to be experienced with quantitative research methods.
