Welcome letter, current students and welcome packs

Last changed: 02 March 2020

Welcome letter

The welcome letter welcomes the admitted student to SLU, asks them to reply to the notification of selection results ("accept") and provides clear reference to important information on the welcome web.

Students admitted on a Master's programme taught in English receive a welcome letter by email. The first round is sent out in April and the second round is sent out in August. They are sent from a no-reply address (noreply@slu.se). The Division of Communication is responsible for sending the welcome letters.

Students admitted on programmes taught in Swedish receive a welcome letter by post. The letter is on a folded A3 sheet. SLU's students' unions are able to enclose an A4 sheet containing their information. Letters are sent to those who are admitted in the first selection round and to those who are newly admitted in the second selection round.

All those admitted receive a further welcome email in August.

With regard to cooperation programmes, the university with primary responsibility is responsible for ensuring that new admissions are given information. For example, Uppsala University sends out information to those admitted on the Energy Systems Engineering and the Aquatic and Environmental Engineering programmes.

Current students

Students admitted on a Bachelor's or professional programme may be contacted by students who are already on the programme. It is up to the programme/faculty in each case to recruit a suitable student for this task.

The recruitment budget covers SEK 50 (+ non-wage costs) per place for programmes with a low number of applicants per place (maximum of 1.2 first choice applicants per place). Fee calculations can be obtained from the Division of Communication (rekrytering@slu.se). 

Contact details for new admissions can be requested by email from admission@slu.se and studyadvisor@slu.se. Admitted students should be contacted by email before being telephoned.

The same student may also be the contact on the programme's welcome page.

Welcome packs

At the start of the semester, new students are given general SLU welcome material, as well as local material. This includes "What every student needs to know", information about support for students with a disability and an area map.

English-language material is provided to Master's and exchange students.
