Address : Suleyman Demirel University Agricultural Faculty Department of Soil Science and Plant Nutrition ISPARTA  
General Information : The MSc program in soil science and plant nutrition department was started to be offered in 1996-1997, later on the department started to offer PhD program in 2006-2007. Currently there are 3 professor, 3 associate professor, 1 assistant professor and 2 research assistant.  
Qualification Awarded : This is a second cycle degree program in the Soil Science and Plant Nutrition (120 ECTS). You will be awarded, on successful completion of the programme and gain competencies, a degree of Master in Soil Science and Plant Nutrition .  
Level of Qualification : Second Cycle (Master?s Degree)/ Third Cycle (Doctorate Degree).  
Specific Admission Requirements : Students, willing to enrol in this graduate programme, must comply with the legal and academic requirements to access the studies in The Suleyman demirel University according to the process established by the YÖK (Higher Education Council) regulations. The detail information about the application (once or sometimes twice a year) and access requirements are released before academic year starts on its web site (fenbilimleri.sdu.edu.tr). Students who have started studies in other universities within or outside of the country may apply for their recognition. The recognition record is unique for each student and therefore the procedure is carried out accordingly before the start of each academic year. Under an established exchanges program or one approved by the University, exchange students from abroad may be accepted for studies on the courses taught in English. Or, if they are confident in Turkish, they may then enroll in any courses, running in Turkish, shown on the ?Course Structure? diagram. For example, Erasmus students from abroad want to spend one term or two terms in a graduate program at Suleyman Demirel University should apply to International Relation Office. The detail information on the application procedure is given in their web site.  
Specific Arrangements for Recognition of Prior Learning (formal, non-formal and informal) : The detail information about the application are released on web site (fenbilimleri.sdu.edu.tr).  
Qualification Requirements and Regulations : National qualifications frameworks may contain levels (or intermediate qualifications) within the three Bologna cycles (e.g. a short cycle within the first cycle). These levels allow institutions to structure a particular qualification and regulate progression through the qualification. Qualification Requirements and Regulations are enacted by YÖK (The Council Of Higher Education) in Turkey.  
Profile of The Programme : To provide advanced education to be given in the soil science and plant nutrition.  
Occupational Profiles of Graduates with Examples : Graduates can work in public institutions (Ministries, State Hydraulic Works, Private Provincial administrations, Banks) and in private institutions.  
Access to Further Studies : Master's graduates that have necessary conditions may apply to the PhD program  
Aims Of Programme : Program emphasizes teaching further information on use of soils as one of the most important natural resources, introducing fertilizers as a important agricultural input factor, sustainable agricultural methods and conservation techniques of natural resources . Education and research activities mainly focus on soil, environment and plant nutrient subjects to increase crop production capacity while maintaining & improving environmental quality, to develop plant-soil systems for treatment and recycling of wastes, for protection of watersheds and for sustainable agricultural production, to predict their respond to various uses, to manage and to protect them from degradation. Program aims the prepare students who has academic tendency to PhD work.  
Examination Regulations, Assessment and Grading : They are specified in each course. Please see the Course Structure for details.  
Graduation Requirements : In order to gain the degree, the student is required to have 60 ECTS credits lectures (from the graduate course programme) and successfully completed them. Then, the student should prepare a thesis after caring out a research on a topic supervised by a senior lecturer. On a successful submission of thesis, student is required to give a successful oral examination on his/her work.  
Mode of Study (full-time, part-time, e-learning etc.) : Fulltime
