Welcome letter 2022

Congratulations on your place at SLU and on the Outdoor Environments for Health and Well-being - Master’s programme! 

The autumn semester 2022 will begin with a roll call.

Date: Monday 29 August

Time: 10.00 am

Place: The roll call this year will be via the Zoom video link: https://slu-se.zoom.us/j/64997853922. Meeting ID: 649 9785 3922. Passcode: 643598

It is mandatory to attend the roll call. Exceptions can be made if you have extenuating circumstances. If you cannot attend, you must notify antagning@slu.se no later than 08:00 the day of the roll call.

Before the meeting, please make sure that your Zoom is working so we can run the meeting as smoothly as possible. You can prepare yourself by reading on this site: https://student.slu.se/en/sw-news/2020/3/new-tool-for-e-meetings-for-slu-students/. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact IT-support as soon as possible.

After the role call there will be a short introduction to the programme.

Also, this autumn, teaching will take place at a distance in the OHW program, but exceptions can be made. Special study visits and other events that can take place outdoors may occur. See more information for each course and more general information via the program's Canvas page.

On the pages for new students  you will find all the information you need as a new student at SLU, including information about the roll call and 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.

If you plan to study half-time (50%), your first course on the program is Environmental Perception and Experience (MP0005). If you plan to study full-time (100%), it is recommended that you also register for the course Place, Activity and Human development (MP0001).

You will also be added to the Canvas pages for the courses, where you will get access to all the course related material you need. Remember to check your student email in order to receive information about the courses and the programme: https://student.slu.se/en/

We who teach on the Outdoor Environments for Health and Well-being program look forward to meeting you as a student here this fall! Our hope is that you will enjoy being a student at SLU Alnarp and that you will find the courses on the programme interesting.

Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Once again, welcome to SLU!
