Congratulations on your place at SLU and on the Master’s programme in Biology in the Management of Fish and Wildlife Populations! We look forward to meeting you here in Umeå this autumn.
The autumn semester 2021 begins with roll call and study information.
Date: Monday 30 August
Time and place: On the pages for new students, you will find information about the start of studies and the roll call for your programme begins.
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 August 23 to 27 (before the semester officially starts), and they will provide essential and useful information about your stay in Sweden, and your studies at SLU.
Your first course will be Fish and Wildlife Census Techniques https://student.slu.se/en/studies/courses-and-programmes/course-search/course/BI1302/10102.2122/Fish-and-Wildlife-Census-Techniques/ On this 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. If there are any problems with advance information about this this course, please contact the course convener Navinder.Singh@slu.se
Please make sure you also read the programme-specific information for new students: https://student.slu.se/en/studies/courses-and-programmes/masters-programmes/management-of-fish-and-wildlife-populations/
Please don't hesitate to contact me email@example.com if you have questions or problems! With two universities, Umeå is a growing city, and it can be difficult to find a place to live. However, I'd recommend this site and either using the Chrome browser to automatically translate it to English if you do not speak Swedish, or using Google or Bing Translate. Let me know if you have problems finding a place to live – although not my job, I have been able to help a number of students find places to live, and I will try to help you too! For example, I may be able to put you in touch with another student to share an apartment with.
If you send me an email, and give me your phone number, and I'd be happy to phone you or have a Zoom meeting with you for a friendly informal chat about the programme and living in Umeå. If you have any questions, encounter a problem, or simply do not know who to contact, get in touch with me. I like helping students!
Once again, welcome to SLU!
