Accepted Students - Study Plan Format
For students attending NCSU
A formal "Plan of Work " is required by the Department of Forestry and Environmental Resources and the NCSU Graduate School. The POW is described at this link. The entire process is online now - no paperwork is required. This should be completed with the coordination of your advisors from both universities.
There is also a required annual progress report for all graduate students that must be filled out by the student, reviewed with the graduate committee and then signed by all parties. This form will be emailed to all students mid-year.
For students attending Michigan Tech
General graduate schools policies and procedures are listed at this link.
Contact your potential advsior at Michigan Tech or Dr. Joshi (email@example.com) if you have any questions.
For students attending University of Helsinki
Students are required to compile a personal study plan, PSP. The personal study plan should be made at the beginning of Master's degree studies. The plan is valid for two years if not otherwise negotiated. Note that you may be asked to provide a study plan in a slightly different format at the other degree institute.
Please, read the instructions carefully.

For students attending SLU
No formal study plan is required for studies at the MSc level at SLU. However, all incoming Atlantis students need to carefully plan their stays at all consortium universities, including SLU. The admitted student should seek assistance from supervisors of her/his thesis work at NCSU/MTU and SLU and compile a course plan in line with the envisioned topic of the MSc thesis.
Degree of Master (Two Years) from SLU requires 120 higher education credits. At least 60 credits have to be completed in a major subject including a degree project of 30 credits. For students in this program the major subject normally is biology, forestry or forest management.
In Sweden, a normal 40-week academic year corresponds to 60 credits and one semester corresponds to 30 credits, compatible with the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
