Welcome letter 2022

Congratulations on your acceptance to the Landscape Architecture Master’s Programme at SLU! We look forward to meeting you here in Alnarp this autumn.

The autumn semester 2022 will begin with a 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 Explorations into landscape architecture. 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.

We will do our best in order for the upcoming two years to be exiting and a bit challenging for you, but also rewarding and fun! As a student we will always have your best interest at heart, but we also ask of you to take responsibility for your own studies and accomplishments.

During your time at SLU you will experience a wide range of courses related to landscape architecture. You will meet teachers and students from different disciplines and backgrounds and in collaboration with those continuously build your knowledge and skills towards a master’s exam in landscape architecture.

I wish you all the luck for the upcoming two years and am looking forward to seeing you soon in Alnarp.    

Once again, welcome to SLU!
