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.
Our partner universities often have several international accreditations and are highly ranked in international contexts – a strong guarantee that you will continue to receive high-quality education during your semester abroad.
Exchange studies involve Lund University exchanging students with their partner universities, thereby giving its students the chance to study at prominent universities all over the world.
Exchange students are often invited to well-organised introduction weeks with cultural activities, language courses and social activities, and can receive help with finding accommodation.
Once you return to Lund, the credits you have earned will be transferred based on clear programme-specific requirements, and can 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 nothing to the host university.
Two types of exchange places – one application
There are two types of exchange places: subject-specific and university-wide. Our university-wide agreements cannot guarantee you an exchange place at the host university’s faculty/department within our subject areas; you may be given the opportunity to study at a different department.
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.
