Incoming exchange

Incoming exchange studies for international students coming to Lund normally last for 3-12 months. We offer several Bachelor's programmes, Master's programmes and courses taught in English.

Outgoing exchange

As a student at Lund University, you have the opportunity to study abroad for one or two semesters at one of our partner universities. If you normally receive funding from the Swedish board of student finance (CSN), you will continue to do so during your exchange studies, and you will not need to pay additional tuition fees at the partner university.

For example, you can take a summer course, do an internship, or a degree project abroad. International experience can be very useful, not only in your future professional life but also for your personal development.

Become an international mentor! As a mentor, you can help international students get settled in Lund and at the University, by being the social link between the international students in your mentor group and student life in Lund. For example, being a mentor may involve you meeting new students at the train station, getting together for an evening at one of the student Nations, and answering questions about Lund and Sweden.
