This is the second half of the BA course in English, that is, the course you need to finish in order to be able to get a BA (bachelor's degree) in English. You need a BA in order to go on to get an MA (master's degree).
The contents of the course (Engelska 76-90)
This course consists of a degree project in English literature or English linguistics. To help you with your degree project, there's a seminar series, and you will also get supervision.
After the course
After having finished this course you can get a BA (bachelor's degree) in English, provided that you also have 90 credits in other subjects. When you have a BA, you can apply to a master's programme and go on to get an MA (master's degree) in English. At the Centre for Languages and Literature (SOL) there is a master's programme in translation, a master's programme in literature, culture and media, and a master's programme in languages and linguistics.
There is also the possibility of studying 1.5 years at Campus Helsingborg to become a school teacher (KPU Kompletterande Pedagogisk Utbildning), when you have 90 or 120 credits of English and the same number of credits in another relevant subject. Please consult the relevant information about KPU at http://www.uvet.lu.se/utbildning/amneslararutbildning/kompletterande-pedagogisk-utbildning/.
Today it is normally necessary to have an MA if you want to be a Ph.D. student and eventually get a Ph.D. and teach English at university level.

How to apply
Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.
Extended application deadline
Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on universityadmissions.se. You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.
First or Second Admission Round?
All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.
The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
Citizens of a country outside of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay tuition fees. You pay one instalment of the tuition fee in advance of each semester.
EU/EEA citizens and Switzerland
There are no tuition fees for citizens of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.
If you are required to pay tuition fees, you are generally also required to pay an application fee of SEK 900 (approximately EUR 100) when you apply at universityadmissions.se. You pay one application fee regardless of how many programmes or courses you apply to.
