Welcome to the Graduate School for Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Sciences!

There is one research school within the LTV-faculty: the Graduate School for Landscape Architecture, Horticulture and Crop Production Science (GS-LTV). The graduate school integrates all research topics at our faculty. We coordinate a number of PhD-courses within our field, and also arrange seminars and workshops.

The aim of GS-LTV is to offer PhD courses and activities at the LTV faculty, meaning that the courses and activities are representative of the subject areas of all departments at the faculty. We hope that GS-LTV will help you to get an overview of all available courses, making it easier to plan which courses to take and when to take them. GS-LTV also aims to collaborate with other research schools within and outside of SLU regarding PhD courses. FUN (the Board of Research education) at the LTV faculty decide about budget and strategy for the research school. The coordinator for GS-LTV has a special responsibility for the PhD courses at the LTV faculty, including facilitating discussions regarding development of new PhD courses and activities. A student representative is also involved in coordination to ensure communication with PhD students.  

When you start your PhD education at the LTV-faculty, you are automatically enrolled in GS-LTV independent of how your PhD education is funded (employed by SLU, industrial PhD or stipend). If you like, you can be enrolled in several research schools at the same time.

Please don’t hesitate to contact the coordinator Åsa Lankinen for more information.
