Examples of exchange programmes at Lund University are:

  • University of California
  • Linneaus Palme
  • Erasmus - The european student exchange programme
  • Nordlys
  • And many more. Lund University has more than 680 partner universities in over 50 countries

A Study Abroad student:

Study Abroad students are, like exchange students, nominated by their home university but other terms and conditions may apply. We welcome Study Abroad students from Waseda, Meiji and Denver among other places.
