For future students
A total of 120 students are enrolled in the first year of undergraduate studies at the study program Forestry. Student enrollment in undergraduate studies is based on the ranking list of candidates. The ranking is based on total number of points accomplished by the candidates on the basis of their high school grade point average (maximum 40 points) and points obtained in the entrance exam (maximum 60 points). At the entrance exam for the study program forestry candidates take exams in two subjects:

The development of disciplines in the field of forestry is a response to the growing need to provide technical solutions for socio-economic development, while at the same time provide protection to natural resources and the environment.
The study program is designed so that students learn the biological and technical disciplines that serve as a base for exploring the complex forest ecosystems and learn to use the techniques that enable them to work on the complex tasks of reforestation, forest management, forest utilization, wildlife protection, forest protection all the way to nature protection and improvement of the environment. Subjects of the organizational and economic disciplines teach them to manage forest holdings of forest administrations and public enterprises in forestry.
