Welcome to all our new students in ecology

To some extent our students have different academic background when starting. We hope that this can contribute to a varied and stimulating study environment.

The Master's program in Ecology offers a large number of optional courses, which means that each of you will tailor your individual study plan in close collaboration with your study advisor. In this way we can offer a flexible study program tailored to your preferences and at the same time ensure that the plan meets the requirements of our Master's degree.

Please take a moment to look at the program content.


In order to acquaint yourself with your classmates, our faculty and staff, we arrange an introductory seminar for our new students Monday 10th of August 2020.

You can find a detailed schedule for the Monday here. 

NB! It is mandatory attendance from day one and you need to inform your study adviser if you are prevented from attending for any reason. Without notice, we expect you to relinquish your place in the study program.

Study start

Your first academic day will be Tuesday the 11th of August when the compulsory course NATF300 - Conservation biology starts.
