BJFU started to enroll graduate students in 1955 and was granted rights for conferring master and doctorate degrees in 1982. Following the establishment of the Graduate School in 2000, a series of measures have been taken to reform the student development systems. As a result, a research-centered tutoring mechanism has been put in place, together with a more fair and reasonable financial aid system that encourages innovative academic explorations among the students. The composition of the graduate students has also been restructured to better balance the development of academic-centered programs and profession-oriented programs. At present, BJFU has 9 First Category doctorate schemes, 27 First Category masters schemes covering academic disciplines 39 Second Category doctoral programs and 116 Second Category masters, as well as 18 professional masters degree programs. The Secretariat of the National Education Guiding Committee for Master of Landscape Architecture and Master of Forestry are both affiliated to BJFU. The implementation of the Innovation Platform for Prioritized Academic Disciplines and the Higher Education Reinvigoration Project 211 has also significantly contributed to the overall improvement of education quality. The graduation dissertation of 5 doctorate students were listed among the Top 100 Best Doctorate Dissertations of China, and 5 others were nominated. Moreover, 4 other students were honored by Beijing municipal government for their outstanding doctorate dissertations, and 132 top IFLA honors/awards have also been granted to BJFU graduate students. The employment rate of BJFU graduate students upon graduation has remained steadily above 95%.
