How to apply for Bachelor’s studies

APPLICATION GUIDELINES

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application period.

Step 1: Apply online

  • Rank your programme/course choices in order of preference and submit them before the application deadline.

*All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc. Our degree programmes are not not open for applications during the Second admission round.
