Master programme

EUR-Organic is a joint Master programme of five partner universities:

  • AU- Aarhus University, Aarhus, Denmark
  • BOKU - University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria
  • ISARA-Lyon - Institut supérieur d'agriculture et d'agroalimentaire Rhône-Alpes, Lyon, France
  • UHOH - University of Hohenheim, Stuttgart, Germany
  • WULS-SGGW - University of Life Sciences Warsaw, Poland

During the MSc programme all students will be studying at two different universities. The university where the student is accepted in the first year of the EUR-Organic is referred to as the home university. The university that the student chooses as second university will be referred to as the host university. As WULS-SGGW and ISARA-Lyon do not offer a full MSc programme in English yet, students can currently choose between AU, BOKU and UHOH as home university and between AU, BOKU, ISARA-Lyon, UHOH and WULS-SGGW as host university. The master thesis work has to be assigned to the host university, but has to be jointly supervised with the home university.

    The full MSc study programme is worth a total of 120 ECTS. The programme is structured in 4 semester packages, each with a work load of 30 ECTS:

  • two Basic Semester Packages (2 x 30 ECTS credits) at your home university
  • one Specialisation Semester Package (30 ECTS credits) at your host university
  • master thesis (30 ECTS credits) at your host university
  • The programme will start with a joint start-up module that is compulsory for all students enrolled in the programme.

    When you apply for the EUR-Organic Master programme you must choose AU, BOKU or UHOH or as your home university. You will be enrolled and spend the first year of the Master programme at your home university.  

    At the end of the first semester you will choose one of the specialisations as well as your host university. In the second semester you will continue with the second basic semester at your home university. In the third semester you will go to your host university and start the specialisation. Finally, you will complete the Master programme with a Masters Thesis undertaken at your host university in the fourth semester.
