Exchange studies for LUSEM students

Everything you need to know about exchange studies

Going abroad as an exchange student means spending a semester at one of LUSEM's partner universities.

What is an exchange?

Spending a semester abroad allows you to take advantage of excellent academic programmes around the globe. There are many benefits of going on an exchange:

  • Gain a global education.
  • Broaden your academic horizon by taking courses of interest that you may not have otherwise been able to take.  
  • Boost your employability. 
  • Improve your language skills.
  • Experience a brand new culture.
  • Become part of a growing global community of exchange students, including those who come to study at LUSEM.

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.

The academic credits you have earned may be transferred based on programme-specific requirements, and may be included in your degree.

Who can apply?

You have the option to go on an exchange semester if you are studying:

  • a Bachelor's programme at LUSEM.
  • a Bachelor's programme that study part of their education at LUSEM.
  • freestanding courses with the aim of earning a Bachelor's degree from LUSEM.
  • MSc in Economics
