Exchange students at SLU
Welcome to SLU, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
SLU has a large number of exchange programmes in cooperation with many leading universities around the world, and receives around 400 exchange students each year. As an exchange student at SLU you can choose from a number of courses in varying subjects.
SLU has four main campuses: Alnarp, Skara, Umeå and Uppsala. In addition, SLU runs educational courses and programmes at other locations in Sweden, such as Skinnskatteberg. Most of our exchange students go to Alnarp, Skinnskatteberg, Umeå or Uppsala.
Compared to other Swedish universities, SLU has one of the highest proportions of PhD-lecturers per student. The university is also number one when it comes to the percentage of students who move on to postgraduate research. This has made SLU one of the top-ranked universities in Sweden.
Who is an exchange student?
Exchange students are students who come from one of SLU’s partner universities. You can be an exchange student within the Erasmus programme, within the NOVA/BOVA network or by coming from a university that has a bilateral agreement with SLU. To make sure that you fit into one of these categories, contact your International Office/Study Abroad Office at your home university.
