Welcome letter 2022

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

The autumn semester 2022 begins with roll call and study information.

Date: Monday 29 August

Time and place: On the pages for new students, you will find information about the study start and when 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 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 Foodscapes 1. 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.

This is a new programme and we hope to see a lot of students from different backgrounds to start this journey with us. Food affects all of our lives and landscapes, and learning more about this complexity have a potential of contributing to solve many of our contemporary challenges.
