Welcome letter 2020

Congratulations on your place at SLU and on the Agroecology Master’s programme! We look forward to meeting you here in Alnarp this autumn.

The autumn semester 2020 will begin with a roll call.

Date: Monday 31 August

Time and place: On the pages for new students, you will find information when the roll call for your programme begins and which room the roll call will be in.

On these pages, you will also find all the information you need as a new student at SLU, including information about the orientation days. The orientation days are not mandatory but we recommend that you attend them. They take place at the end of August, before the semester starts, and provide essential and useful information about your stay in Sweden and your studies at SLU.

Your first course will be Agroecology Basics. On the course page, you will find a timetable for your classes and other course-related information. Timetables and reading lists will be published at least four weeks before the course starts.

Agroecology is a broad concept, represented not only as a science but also as a social movement and as a set of agricultural practices. The Agroecology Master’s programme at SLU aims to provide a holistic and interdisciplinary understanding about the ecology and sustainability of food systems. Agroecology is also gaining increasing attention worldwide, and I believe that studying Agroecology will lead to many opportunities for you to contribute in the transition towards more sustainable agriculture.


Once again, welcome to SLU!
