Congratulations and welcome to SLU!
Thank you for choosing to study at our university. It is now beginning, your life as a student at SLU. We will do our very best to make your time here as rewarding and interesting as possible.
To study at SLU is to make a contribution to a sustainable development. We have a unique profile and are strategically engaged in some of the most important issues facing society and the green sector, both nationally and internationally. We also have one of Sweden’s highest teacher-to-student ratios, giving you access to the best teachers, post-graduate students, researchers and professors around. At SLU, knowledge is constantly close at hand, and you are always welcome to make contact with staff members if you have any enquiries.
Here at SLU, we are very proud of the fact that our graduates have so much success with finding employment. To receive a degree qualification from SLU will make you very attractive on the job market and the majority of our students find relevant employment immediately after graduating.
As a student at SLU we hope that you will also join one of our student unions. The student unions reflect the very strong student democracy at the university, and ensure that the student body is represented on all levels at the university. Few other higher education institutions provide their students with so many opportunities to influence their own education.
Once again, I would like to wish you a very warm welcome to SLU. Together, we can help to shape the future for ourselves and for the rest of the world.
