Part 3 – Roll-call day, 29 August

The third part will take place on 29 August, the first day of the semester, and includes the following:

  • Programme-specific roll-calls 8-12am
    Programme-specific roll-calls in designated time slots, with a pre-recorded welcome greeting from the vice-chancellor and Sluss (Joint Committee of Students' Unions at SLU). The vice-chancellor's welcome greeting is intended to be played as part of the roll call for each degree programme.

    The slot schedule applies to Alnarp, Uppsala and Umeå, and it is important that you respect it. The pre-recorded greeting from the (deputy) vice-chancellor will be available to everyone.

  • Online Zoom welcome desk
    Study counsellors and admissions staff will be available at an online Zoom welcome desk all day for students who need help.
  • Students' unions activities
    The students' unions also have activities planned for roll-call day.
