The transatlantic forestry master dual degree program (TRANSFOR-M), which started in 2010, allows students to spend one year working on their degree in Canada and one year at a European institution.

Students in the program will earn both a Canadian and a European master's degree in forestry and environmental management. 

UNB's faculty of forestry and environmental management leads the Canadian initiative, partnered with the University of British Columbia and the University of Alberta.

The European partner universities are: Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg in Germany, Bangor University in Wales, the University of Eastern Finland, and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. 

Until September 2014, nine UNB students taking part in the TRANSFOR-M program will receive a scholarship funded by the Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) international academic mobility program. Applicants to the TRANSFOR-M program are selected based on their GPA and extracurricular activities. 

UNB’s Brigitte Leblon, TRANSFOR-M’s Canadian coordinator, said that UNB’s involvement in the TRANSFOR-M program draws additional graduate students to the university. 

"The master’s program will be customized for each student," Prof. Leblon said.  "This is a great international opportunity for students to earn two degrees at the same time on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean."
