Through research, there is much collaboration between Wageningen University & Research and research institutes all over the world. These collaborations are extended to education. Together with outstanding universities, we offer several international study programmes where students from different countries take part in the same programme. You follow courses and/or can do your thesis/internship at Europe’s top universities in specific topics. In this way you become an expert in one of the animal sciences fields and have the opportunity gain experience with different international (educational and scientific) cultures. Several of the programmes allow you to graduate at two universities, and thus obtain a double MSc degree.
Current international MSc programmes are:
"Twice the food production at half the ecological footprint” by 2050 is a target requiring highly skilled academics at feed companies, governmental departments and educational institutions. This joint MSc course on Sustainable Animal Nutrition and Feeding (EM-SANF) will decrease the shortage of academics in this field by educating students from around the world in a state of the art, 2-years Master course in the feeding and nutrition of food producing animals with a multidisciplinary approach towards productivity, animal health and welfare and environmental aspects. It brings together four European Higher Education Institutes with additional support of industrial and institutional partners worldwide. For more information visit the website (www.emsanf.eu) or contact the EM-SANF office (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The European Master in Animal Management (EURAMA) is a joint initiative of four European universities and combines animal sciences, policies, economics and agri-business. EURAMA is set up because animal husbandry and livestock development are more and more constrained by technical factors (food supply, animal health, level of management, genetic profile) and infrastructural and socio-economic factors (trade, labour, entrepreneurship) outside countries borders. Students focus on chain management, food quality and food safety in an European setting. Graduates are trained to tackle multi-disciplinary problems related to sustainable livestock management in an international setting. For more information contact René Kwakkel (email@example.com).
