Jagdausbildung - Hunting

Header Studium schmal.jpg

Programmes with a forestry focus open up a broad spectrum of professional fields from the local timber industry to global environmental planning. The days when forest science graduates almost naturally ended up in the state forest administration are long gone. Very few will have to deal with hunting tasks, which played a very important role in the traditional job description of the forest official. Nevertheless, the Faculty of Forest and Environmental Sciences continues to offer its students of forest bachelor's and master's programmes the possibility of hunting training.

Usually this training is held in German - if you are interested please contact the trainer and discuss the options.

Attention: Hunting training is not part of the course (no credit as a course achievement / ECTS)!

Detailed and current information about the hunting course can be found here.
