Mobility and/or Internationalisation outlook

The Master in Forests and Natural Areas offers a wide range of opportunities to study at other institutions, in Belgium, Europe and elsewhere.

The Faculty would like to highlight the strengths of this programme, particularly the potential for research and the fact that it is very much a part of a comprehensive University. The shape of the elective modules available has also been influenced by the different fields of activity in which bioengineers work.

There are two kinds of international mobility: students who have already gained their Bachelor degree can move abroad to study for their Master at another institution; it is also possible to take some course modules in another institution. The mobility rate for AGRO students on exchange schemes such as Erasmus is around 30-40%, depending on the year.

This mobility should increase given the harmonization of education at the European level and the conclusion of new partnership agreements outside ERASMUS as well as membership of thematic networks. The AGRO Faculty is also a member of the ATHENS network.

The Master in Forests and Natural Areas proposes privileged exchanges with the following institutions:

  1. Université de Moncton, Edmunston campus, Faculté de Foresterie (Canada)
  2. Universitad politecnica de Madrid (Spain)
  3. Institut Polytechnique LaSalle Beauvais (France)
  4. Ecole Nationale du Génie Rural, des Eaux et des Forêts (Nancy, France)
  5. Ecole Nationale Forestière d’Ingénieurs (Salé, Morocco)
The ‘Réseau des Ingénieurs Forestiers de Louvain (RIFL)’ creates possibilities for project-based student mobility.
