Welcome to the GFA, the Göttingen Graduate School of Forest and Agricultural Sciences!


In the winter semester of 2015/2016, the Faculties of Forest Sciences and Forest Ecology and Agricultural Sciences jointly established the graduate school to support (prospective) doctoral students and their supervisors at both faculties. The graduate school has been set up to co-ordinate and develop a structured framework to ensure high academic standards and excellent supervision for PhD students of forest and agricultural sciences.
