How can a European perspective contribute to better understanding and management of our environment?


Europe has a long history of intensive use of natural resources and lessons on misuse and overuse of land and water resources. This has forced Europeans to pay strong attention to environmental deterioration and ecosystem vulnerability. Europe is therefore at the cutting edge with respect to environmental research, its use in monitoring, control, legislation, policy and management actions, and development of environmental technology.

The EnvEuro master programme is focused on soil, water and biodiversity and the aim is to give students European and international perspectives on planning and management as well as research in the environmental sector. The programme has six specialisations of which three are available at SLU:

  • Water resources (at SLU)
  • Soil resources and land use (at SLU)
  • Environmental management (at SLU)
  • Ecosystems and biodiversity
  • Environmental impacts
  • Climate change

The EnvEuro programme is a co-operation between four European universities and is part of the Euroleague for Life Sciences (ELLS) network, a cooperation of leading universities in the fields of Natural Resource Management, Agricultural and Forestry Sciences, Life Sciences, Veterinary Sciences, Food Sciences, and Environmental Sciences. For more information visit: EnvEuro.eu 

The students study the first year at one of the partner universities and the second year at another partner university. Upon completion of the program, the students get a double master degree in environmental science.

It is important to know that courses on the program may have specific admission requirements and the admission requirements for the program may not be sufficient to fulfil these specific requirements on all courses.

There are two admission rounds for this Master's programme. The first admission round is open to all international applicants at www.universityadmissions.se. The last date to apply is 17 January 2022. SLU strongly encourage all international students to apply in this first admission round.


The first year you study at one of the four EnvEuro universities (home university) and the second at one of the others (host university), where you also do your MSc thesis. The partner universities are SLU (Uppsala, Sweden), University of Copenhagen (Denmark), University of Hohenheim (Germany) and BOKU (Vienna, Austria).
The program has one compulsory course called Environmental Management in Europe that all program students read together. It is given as a distance course at the end of the first semester. However, the course begins with a physical meeting in connection with the ELLS conference (it is also possible to participate via video), where you meet all students and teachers and administrators from the four universities.
For the first semester at SLU, you select basic courses from a wide range, but the range varies slightly depending on which EnvEuro specialisation you have chosen (see the EnvEuro consortium's website). During semester 2, you select courses within your specialisation. The third semester you go to your host university and continue with the same or a different specialisation and the last semester you do your Master thesis. After completion of all courses you get a double degree in environmental science – both from your home and host university.
In addition to the courses offered at SLU (see Course schedule below), you should also take a look on the specialisations and courses offered at the other partner universities. Complete information on the partner universities, specialisations, and courses is found on the EnvEuro homepage.

Want to know more? You can read the syllabus at the student web.


Graduated EnvEuro students are now working e.g. as PhD students or researchers/teachers at universities, as experts in environmental science in governmental agencies, the private sector or NGO:s or as teachers, both in their home country and abroad.

Thanks to studies at two universities in different countries and with students from many countries you will have great opportunities to increase your intercultural competence, build networks that will help you in your future career and to develop your understanding within several aspects of environmental science.

Central Uppsala in summer

Campus Uppsala

Uppsala is Sweden’s fourth largest city, and the hub of SLU’s educational activities. Located just outside of the city centre, SLU’s Uppsala campus is spacious, leafy and picturesque. It is a fitting setting for Sweden’s only agricultural university, and possibly the most research-intensive of all universities. With two universities located in Uppsala, students can enjoy a lively, dynamic and stimulating atmosphere.
