Application and admission: Open with entry requirements examination.
Students must have level B1 proficiency in English.

The adequacy of the applicant's personal academic preparation for admission to the master's degree programme is assessed through personal interview.
The degree programme in Agro-environmental Sciences provides ample opportunities to study or work abroad, mainly through the Erasmus+ programme, which has around 30 EU member universities. Globally, about 5 students seize this opportunity every year.
The fields that can be developed at partner universities cover all the specific areas of the degree programme. Most students are inclined to follow courses that will broaden their scientific knowledge, or to carry out internships or degree theses in established laboratories.
Grades and credits awarded by partner universities are almost entirely recognized. Students thus know that Erasmus activities will be positively assessed in their curriculum. There are other opportunities for cultural exchanges with universities that are not part of the Erasmus system but have signed agreements with our university. These belong to non-EU areas such as China, Japan, Latin America.
Highly recommended, not mandatory
For students enrolled on bachelor’s, master’s and single cycle degree programmes are divided into two instalments of different amounts and with different payment deadlines:
- the first, corresponding to the minimum amount, is the same for all students
- the second - technically referred to as an ‘all-inclusive fee’- that is variable.
Students can also be entitled for tuition fee reductions such as:
- lowering for students who meet high merit requirements
- fixed amounts calculated on the basis of the student's citizenship group for those with income/property abroad
- support for students who have political refugee status.
