Apply for exchange studies

1) Apply for exchange studies online

You can still apply for exchange through the Erasmus program!
Until 5 May we will, at the Faculty of Science, hold the Erasmus application open for our students. Do you want to go on an exchange in Europe during autumn 2017 or full year 2017/18 - with a scholarship - apply! The "first come first served" principle will apply and we may close possibilities when it is no longer possible to send applications to our partner universities. Thus do not wait to apply if you're interested. The application is a bit simplified this time around. You just need to fill in a study plan and you don't have to include a transcript, CV or statement of purpose in this first phase. However, you must ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements. If you have questions email Kristina Miolin, kristina.miolin [at]

Documents to be included in your application

  • Study plan
    Example Study plan (word)
  • CV
    Example CV (PDF)
  • Ladok transcript showing which courses you have taken (available through the Student Portal)
  • Statement of purpose, explaining why you wish to study abroad, how your planned studies relate to your main field in Lund, and what future benefits you believe your exchange studies will have. Justify your first choice of university. Your statement of purpose must be written in English or in the relevant language of instruction, and not exceed one A4 page.

2) Wait for a nomination

Many of our exchange places receive more applicants than can be accommodated, in which case the applicants are ranked based on the number of attained credits, study results (grades) and purpose of the exchange (as described in your application). You will be notified via email whether you have been offered an exchange place or not.
