For LUSEM students

One of the School of Economics and Management’s objectives is to ensure that as many students as possible get to spend a semester of their education abroad at a prominent partner university.  

Why exchange?

  • Gain international experience and beneficial qualifications for your future career and personal development. 
  • Experience a different style of education and take courses of interest that you may not have otherwise been able to take.  

  • Improve your language skills.
  • Exchange students are often invited to well-organised introduction weeks with cultural activities, language courses and social activities, and may receive help finding accommodation.
  • Once you have completed your exchange semester, the credits you have earned may be transferred based on programme-specific requirements, and may be included in your degree.
  • Students who are not required to pay tuition fees in Sweden are also not required to pay tuition fees to the host university. Tuition-fee-paying students who are non-EU/EEA citizens will be required to pay a tuition fee to Lund University during their exchange semester, but not to the host university.

How do I apply?

All exchange places are applied for through the International Office at the School of Economics and Management, except for the one-year exchange places at the University of California, which are to be applied for separately through the UC Study Center.

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.
