As a student at SLU you have made a choise for a sustainable future.

SLU graduates are needed both in Sweden and the rest of the world in order to handle the transition from a fossil-based to a bio-based and sustainable society. More and more services will need to be delivered from our fields and forests when we,in order to protect both the climate and the environment, leave fossil oil and coal in the ground.

We will need to rely on nature,our forests, farmlands, gardens and pastures, and our cities,when we produce climate-smart and non-toxic food, energy and bio-based materials that can replace fossil-based products. At the same time, we must safeguard biodiversity and offer humans and animals a healthy life. And all of this within the environmental,social and economic limits of our planet.

At SLU, we research and teach exactly this. We take on these challenges, and we find real solutions. We work with sustainable rural and urban development, and for the well-being and quality of life for both humans and animals. We act locally as well asglobally for a sustainable, thriving and better world.

To do this, SLU needs its present and future students. During your time as a student here, I can promise you a stimulating study environment with students and teachers from all over the world. Finding a job after graduation will not be difficult – the land-based industries, environmental and nature conservation businesses, city developers and animal clinics need you.
