Courses and programmes
Lund University offers many courses and programmes with international and intercultural elements. They also give you the chance to meet students from all over the world.
Special Area Study courses (SAS courses)
Take a Special Area Study course. Many incoming exchange students take SAS courses, so it gives you a chance to meet students from all over the world. The courses are 7.5 credits and cover a wide range of subjects, such as gastronomy, the human/animal relationship, migration, sustainability, the role of the media, and more.
The global classroom means that everyone gets to share their own knowledge and values. Discussions are therefore based on many different perspectives.
Most SAS courses are part-time at 50% or 75%, which means you can fit a course alongside your regular studies.
You apply as usual via Antagning.se – just search for the name of the course.
Study a Bachelor's or Master's programme in English
There are many exciting programmes offered in English at Lund University. Here, too, you will have the opportunity to meet students from many different countries and study with them in the global classroom. Most programmes offered in English are at the Master's level.
