University profile Lund University has a long and vibrant history covering almost 350 years of teaching. It has evolved from just a few hundred students and professors, being paid with meat and grain, into its present form with around 46,000 students and a position of excellence in international teaching and research. Lund University grew strongly throughout the 20th century and is today Sweden's largest institution of higher education and research. The campus reflects the University's history, with magnificent buildings separated by cobbled streets and green spaces, but also its vision for the future with, for example, one of Sweden's largest science parks located close to the campus and the planned MAX IV facility and ESS European spallation source. 'Ad utrumque,' 'prepared for both,' is Lund University's motto, referring to the book and the sword in the University's seal from the 17th century. Today the expression can be applied to a number of the dual values for which the University stands, such as tradition and innovation or breadth and depth.

Courses in English at various departments usually require that students already have a certain background in the subject (at least one year of full-time studies on the subject before applying for courses). Lund University also offers exchange students, regardless of discipline affiliation, the opportunity to take courses in a wide range of subjects, including Swedish culture and society and also European and global issues. They do not require previous knowledge in the subject.
Undergraduate programs NOT open to exchange students • The Department of Industrial Design and the School of Architecture demand 3 years of prior studies in the subject as well as a portfolio.
• There is a high demand for courses at the School of Economics and Management. Therefore, we cannot guarantee a full-time course load of solely Economics and Management coursework. Furthermore, we cannot guarantee admittance to certain high-demand courses, even if a student is eligible.
• Journalism courses are taught in Swedish, and are generally not available to exchange students.
• Exchange students may be categorically excluded from specific English-language taught courses that are part of certain degree programmes (Closed MSc programmes, for example).
