LOCATION

Lund, SWEDEN

Academic areas: Exchange students take courses in LU's Department of Sociology. Students typically take one or two courses at a time throughout the duration of the semester, rather than taking all courses at once. Most courses are 5 or 10 weeks long.

Other courses within the Faculty of Social Science

Note: 1 ECTS credit = .6 semester credits (5 ECTS = 3 UHM credits). 30 ECTS / 18 semester credits is considered a normal courseload.

VISA / OTHER

Activities for Exchange Students - Sweden is part of the Schengen Borders Agreement. Lund University can match exchange students with "International Mentors". Mentors help new students with practical matters and introduce you to various student activities and everyday Swedish living. Lund University also has a "Friend Family Programme." Students who are interested in learning more about Swedish culture can apply for a Friend Family. This is not a host family living situation; rather, students visit their family for occasional meals or other activities.

Visa Information - UHM students will need to apply for a Residence Permit for Permission to Study in Sweden prior to departure. More Information
