With 38,000 students, Lund University, founded in 1666, is Scandinavia’s largest university, ranked the top university in Sweden and one of the best in the world. Lund spread across seven schools (called Faculties), including Law, Economics and Management, Engineering, Social Sciences, Medicine, Humanities and Theology, and Science. Lund University, a member of Universitas 21, offers over 300 courses in English.
The university is located in Southern Sweden, just 45 minutes by train from Copenhagen, Denmark. The city of Lund, with its 100,000 residents, dates back to 990, when it was founded by the Viking king Svend Tveskaeg, and it still preserves its medieval charm with cobbled streets and picturesque old houses that lead to its many parks and green spaces. The University lies in the heart of the city. Everything is close at hand and within easy reach by bicycle or foot. According to a recent survey, Lund is regarded as the best city in Sweden in terms of health, safety and wealth.
The academic year at Lund is divided into two terms: the fall semester runs from the beginning of September until mid-January and the spring semester runs from mid-January until early June. Our exchange runs on three tracks: a university-wide exchange Lund Campus for all majors for fall and spring; a special engineering track for Engineering majors in the spring and a business track for Business majors for fall and spring. In the university-wide track, Lund University offers more than 300 courses recommended for exchange students. Here is a portal to access courses in English. In addition, you are invited to take Introductory Swedish courses.
The Faculty of Engineering (LTH) offers courses open to third and fourth year students in Chemical, Civil and Environmental, Electrical, and Mechanical Engineering, as well as Building and Environmental Technology, Computer Science, Food Technology, Engineering and Nutrition, Design Sciences, Engineering and Automation, Energy Sciences, Immunotechnology, Industrial Management and Logistics, Physics, and Technology and Society.

The International Housing Office at Lund University manages both on campus and off campus accommodations. Click here for living accommodations in Lund. The university also has an active student life organized through student groups called Students on Campus “nations.” For many, the word, “nation” means country, but in Lund the word means something entirely different. Nations in Lund are large social clubs and the heart of student life. They represent your chance to really involved with Swedish student culture. They are not like fraternities or sororities–they are open to all students and there are no entrance requirements. Membership in one nation gives you access to all other nations. Nations organize pub nights, parties, debates, excursions, and sports.
You will need a residence permit for studies to study at Lund. Apply as soon as you receive your letter of acceptance.
