The programme was developed by four European universities in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Sweden. They are members of the Euroleague for Life Sciences and all among the best in their field in Europe. Students obtain a double degree upon completion of their studies at the two universities by receiving two full Master's degree certificates.
Educational organisationThe two-year programme comprises four semesters. It consists of both compulsory and elective modules and a Master's thesis. This ensures a strong focus on each of the specialisations while leaving room for individual interests. Students study at one of the four partner universities for their first year and switch to another partner university for their second year.
The partner universities are:
- University of Copenhagen, Denmark
- Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden
- University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Austria
- University of Hohenheim, Germany
The programme starts in August with a mandatory, one-week intensive introduction course in Copenhagen, Denmark, where the foundation for the compulsory e-learning module "Environmental Management in Europe" is laid.
Study abroad unit(s)EnvEuro is a double degree programme, in which students study one year at their home university as well as one year at their host university. Therefore, studies abroad are an integral part of this Master's programme.
InternshipsInternships are not compulsory, but recommended. The internship must be organised by the student and has to fit the schedule of the programme. Upon request, the Career Center may assist in finding an internship.

Enrolment feesAbout 160 EUR per semester
Costs of livingLiving expenses in Germany are relatively high. Each student should calculate at least 700 EUR per month for accommodation, food, health insurance and public transport.
For the first month, students should expect higher costs, as they have to pay registration fees.
Rent for a single room varies from 220 EUR to 400 EUR per month.
Job opportunitiesHohenheim offers enrolled students assistant jobs on campus. Students are responsible for managing working hours and these hours should not conflict with their studies. Working off campus is also possible according to the Aliens Act. However, please be aware that without good knowledge of German, jobs are quite difficult to find.
Arrival supportAssistance with accommodation, enrolment, and health insurance is provided by the international office. The programme coordination office can help with the organisation of the studies and other formalities.
