Information for exchange students coming to Sweden
- To be accepted as an exchange student you must be nominated by your home university.
- Freemovers cannot apply to the exchange programme at our department. To study on your own in Lund or Sweden, read more on www.studyinsweden.se
How to apply
The term exchange student implies that your home university has a formal agreement for exchange studies with Lund University. You apply to our school via your International Office at home. Once you have been selected and nominated by your home university you are accepted as an exchange student to Lund University.
We will send you an e-mail with further information and instructions on what to do next. You are advised to strictly adhere to the deadlines and instructions outlined in the package to ensure efficient arrangement of your studies in Lund.
Your assigned coordinator is responsible for your stay in Lund, and will assist you with all formalities and questions regarding your studies in Lund except for questions on housing.
Deadline for nominations for autumn term is April 15 and nominations for spring term is October 15.
If a course is not full after the first round of admissions it may open for late applications, thereby giving interested students a second chance to apply.
Please note that a late application is not a guarantee that you will be admitted to the course, and that the applications are handled by the Admissions Department at Lunds University and not by us here at the Department of Sociology.
We have no way to influence the time that process takes.

Apply for housing
Like in many other university cities, housing is always in great demand in Lund, especially at the beginning of each term. The LU Accomodation provides a limited number of rooms for exchange students and will do their utmost to help you, but we cannot guarantee a room for everyone.
Autumn term: March 1 - April 25
Spring term: September 1 - October 25
Applying before the deadline is important. Please note that, even if you apply for housing on time, there is no guarantee that you will get housing through LU Accomodation. You should also look into other options before coming to Lund.
If you have any questions about housing, please contact LU Accomodation:
- Phone: +46 46 222 01 00
- Fax: +46 46 222 88 95
