MF Graduation Requirements and Timeline

Master of Forestry TRANSFOR-M students are registered at UBC for a minimum of two years. Within that time period, one year is spent on exchange at your chosen European partner university and one year is spent at UBC-Vancouver.

Registration Timeline*

Year One (September 2017 to August 2018)

MF students register at UBC but spend the year in Europe at their chosen TRANSFOR-M partner institution and complete that institution’s Master program degree requirements (dual registration).

Year Two (September 2018 to April 2019)

MF students return to UBC and complete a total of 30 credits to qualify for MF degree conferral: either a 3-credit major essay with 27 credits of approved course work, or a 6-credit major essay with 24 credits of approved course work. Approved course work must include FRST 544 (Technical Communications) and FRST 547 (Forestry in BC). MF graduation is expected in Spring 2019, but continued registration through to August 2019 or December 2019 is allowed, if further time is approved by the Program Director (continuing tuition is assessed for extra terms).

* Flexibility may be offered for students to complete their UBC MF requirements in Year One and go to Europe in Year Two. Please discuss this option with the UBC TRANSFOR-M Director during your interview.
