The Program

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.

According to a recent survey, Lund is regarded as the best city in Sweden in terms of health, safety and wealth.

The Experience

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.
