Autumn 2020: For nominated students

  • Current LUSEM students: It is difficult to know what the situation will be in the autumn for the numerous countries in which we have partner universities. Your exchange coordinator keeps in contact with the partner university and can provide you with information. To be on the safe side, apply for courses in Lund for the autumn by 15 April and remember to cancel if it turns out that you do not intend to take the courses.

  • Incoming exchange students: If you are an exchange student who are coming to Lund this autumn semester, the application deadlines still remain. Contact us at if you need an extension. 

Please note

To be accepted as an exchange student you must be nominated by your home university.
