Welcome to Euroforester 2021

Congratulations to your place at SLU and on the Euroforester Master’s program!

We are looking forward to meet you here in Alnarp 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 (https://student.slu.se/en/studies/new-student/), you will find information about the roll call, and more information how your program 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 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 Sustainable Forestry in southern Sweden. Please find this course on the student web. On the course page, you will find a timetable for your classes and other course-related information. Timetables and literature lists will be available at least four weeks before the course starts.

Please make sure you also read the program-specific information for new students

(https://student.slu.se/en/studies/courses-and-programmes/masters-programmes/euroforester/).

Although you as a student are the focus of our work, you have a great personal responsibility for your studies and your academic performance, no matter if you are a program student or have chosen single courses.

At the Euroforester courses, you will meet fellow students from both Sweden and other countries. I am sure that many new experiences and exiting meetings lay ahead of you.

Once again, welcome to SLU!

Credit transfer

If you want to include courses from other higher education institutions in your degree, you need to transfer the credit for these. The procedure is slightly different depending on whether it is a professional qualification or a general qualification.

If you have successfully completed a higher education course or study programme and you want it to be included in your degree from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, you are entitled to have it considered for credit transfer. The credit transfer procedure is handled by the separate Board of Studies at the faculties, except where it concerns studies from other Swedish higher education institutions that are to be included in a general degree. In the latter case, the credit transfer is handled by the Division of Student Affairs and Learning Development. Find out more.

Degree

The aim of a higher education is usually a degree. A degree is a proof that you have acquired knowledge and proficiency to a certain level through your studies. When you have considered that you have completed your studies and want to get your degree certificate, you have to apply for it.
