All courses are offered via the ordinary course programme at the respective universities and hence available for students from all Danish universities, as well as visiting students.

Most SLUSE courses are interdisciplinary and attract students from a range of disciplines, including agronomy, anthropology, biology, development studies, development economics, engineering, forestry and geography.
