How can a European perspective contribute to better understanding and management of our environment?
Please note, to make SLU your home university you must submit an application both through the national Swedish application system (www.universityadmissions.se) and through the consortium for EnvEuro (www.enveuro.eu).
A long history of intensive use and misuse of natural resources has forced Europeans to deal with their environmental problems. European countries are therefore now leading in environmental science and its use in assessment, management, legislation and technology. EU is a principle actor in all these questions and an important platform for building of knowledge and enforcement of policies.
The EnvEuro programme is a co-operation between four European universities with students coming from many countries. The Master is focused on soil, water and biodiversity and the aim is to give students European and international perspectives on research as well as planning and management in the environmental sector. The programme has six specialisations: Water resources, Soil resources and land use, Environmental management, Ecosystems and biodiversity, Environmental impacts and Climate change (of which the three first are available at SLU).
Note that applications to the programme must be submitted both the national Swedish application system (www.universityadmissions.se) and through the consortium for EnvEuro (www.enveuro.eu).
The programme is given as 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.
UN's sustainable development goals in the education
SLU's educations creates knowledge which contributes to the goals for sustainable development, both in Sweden and internationally.
Graduated EnvEuro students are now working e.g. as PhD students or researchers/teachers at universities, as experts with environmental science issues in the governmental and private sector or as teachers, both in their home country and abroad. Thanks to studies at two universities you will have great opportunities to build networks that will help you in your future career and in development of understanding within several aspects of environmental science.
