The study programme lasts two academic years (four semesters). The first semester is devoted to providing students with scientific backgrounds of compulsory and elective study modules. The second (compulsory modules) and third semester (elective modules) intend to broaden the expertise of participants in different specific disciplines of agriculture. The fourth semester is devoted to research work and preparation of Master's thesis. The study programme and its elective fields of specialization enable students to tailor their own study by selecting optional specialization and elective modules. The selection of elective modules is subjected to approval by postgraduate study commission.
