Course schedule

You can find the schedules for most (but not all) courses through the Lund University schedule generator, TimeEdit.

In those cases where the course is not in TimeEdit, the schedule will be available through the course webpages. Keep in mind that in many cases the schedules are not finalised until one month before the beginning of the course.

The schedules in TimeEdit are highly customisable, and you can also subscribe to them. We recommend the graphical view, and colour reservation by course.
