Welcome to Lund University!

Spring semester has just started and I would like to welcome all new international partner university students that have arrived at Lund University. You have made an excellent choice in choosing Lund University for your education and especially during this year when we celebrate our 350th anniversary!

Tuesday 10 January almost 600 international students from all over the world came to Lund. Thanks to the international mentors, fellow students volunteering, the new students got help all the way from the Copenhagen Airport to their housing in Lund after having been checked in at the Ingvar Kamprad Design Centre – IKDC.

During the extensive orientation weeks, staff and international mentors are helping the new students to settle in. There has been a welcome reception hosted by the Vice-Chancellor in the University Main Building but also information meetings, a student association fair, excursions, mentor group activities, parties, guided tours et cetera. The aim is to help all new international students feel at home a get a good start in creating new networks.

We are very proud that so many students are choosing Lund University and I am sure that all students will have an exciting and inspiring period here in Lund. Once again welcome and I wish you all the best for your stay here!

The #1 choice for international students in Sweden!

I am pleased to announce that Lund University, once again, is the most popular choice for international students wanting to study their Master’s degree in Sweden, with 1/3 of all applicants from the latest application round choosing Lund University programmes.

Of the total 74,620 students who applied to autumn 2017 Master’s degree programmes at Swedish universities, 26,223 chose Lund University programmes. This is an increase of 22 % compared to the 21,448 students who applied for Lund University programmes in the 2016 application round.

The University’s Annual Celebration – 28 January

At Lund University, we believe in traditions and we have done so for many years. 28 January is the day for our annual celebration and marks the day the University was inaugurated in 1668. This year the annual celebration was attended by H M King Carl XVI Gustaf and H M Queen Silvia. In light of our 350th anniversary the Jubilee Medal was conferred upon H M the King. This year we also highlighted the day with the reopening of Skissernas Museum – Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art.
