In general there are two different ways to study abroad – as an exchange students or on your own.
Study abroad as an exchange student
Lund University has exchange agreements with over 600 partner universities in 70 countries all around the world. This gives you unique opportunities to study abroad. Every year we send approximately 1200 students on exchange studies.
If you are a Bachelor's or Master's student interested in exchange studies, you must first ask your programme coordinator if the programme allows exchange studies and which semester is preferable to go.
You then apply for an exchange at your faculty of study. Information about eligibility, application instructions and deadlines may vary between faculties. Please check at your faculty's website.
Study abroad on your own
You can apply to universities abroad on your own. For this process it is up to you to arrange everything and if there are fees, you need to pay those yourself. You also need to arrange your own valid insurance.
Study abroad through international networks and programmes
Lund University is a member of several international networks and programmes. Some of these offer study abroad opportunities, often including scholarships.
Lund University is participating in several Erasmus Mundus Action 2 projects and a few of these allow outgoing mobility from Lund University to the project region or country. All projects marked with the star symbol (*) on the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 webpage allow outgoing mobility and as a current EU student at Lund University you may be able to apply to these projects to study abroad. Students who are EU citizens may also be able to apply to Erasmus Mundus Action 2 projects starting this year that Lund University is not participating in.
