Välkomstbrev

Congratulate to your place at the Sustainable Development - Master’s Programme. We are looking forward to meeting you here in Uppsala this autumn!

This programme is a joint effort by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) and Uppsala University (UU).  Students in this programme will take courses at both universities.  This will not be a problem, as it only takes 20 minutes to bike between campuses and busses also run frequently. 

A welcome week for new programme students will be organized by the department of geo Sciences at Uppsala University for the week of August 20th to August 24th. An exact schedule will be sent out at a later date. For welcome events organized by Uppsala University for all new international students please see more information here.

SLU have Orientation Days between 29 August and 31 August, which you are invited to attend. The orientation programme will give you essential and useful information about your stay in Sweden and your studies at SLU.

Please note that on Monday August 20th we will have a mandatory registration session in Hambergssalen, Department of Earth Sciences, Villavägen 16. If you are not able to attend this session please contact your study counsellor at susdev@geo.uu.se.

The official start of the programme will be on Monday August 27th in Hambergssalen, Department of Earth Sciences, Villavägen 16. During this session you will meet the programme directors as well as the different course coordinators.

 

You will find all information that you will need as a new student at SLU at the page New student. On this page you will also find more information about the roll call and orientation programme.
