The city of Lund has a population of around 100,000. For many centuries Lund was a cultural and religious centre in southern Scandinavia and its traditions of learning date back to the Middle Ages, when the divinity school was located there. It is in the extreme south of the country in the Skåne region.
Lund is a small city, but nevertheless you can get mostly anything you need there. The weather remains cold through mid-March, and it doesn’t become warm until the end of June. Sweden is a very beautiful and clean country, and the people are all very friendly. Nearly everyone speaks English, which makes communication a breeze compared to other European locations. The prices of many products are expensive, however. Studying in Sweden for the full year is ideal if you intend to travel, as Sweden and Norway really start to get beautiful in the summer months. The university also sponsors trips to Russia and Finland.
The university is divided into eight faculties that work in a decentralised structure. The faculties are the Lund Institute of Technology (LTH), Science, Law, Social Sciences, Medicine, Liberal Arts and Theology, Economics and Management, and Performing Arts.
The Faculty of Humanities offers courses in Archaeology & Ancient History, Art History & Musicology, Comparative Literature/Film, Cultural Studies, English, European Ethnology, History, Human Ecology, and Linguistics.
For more information on courses, please visit their Course Information webpage.

The International office at Lund will work with exchange students to provide them housing in the limited number of rooms that they work with. Students are advised to apply for housing as early as possible to make sure they are guaranteed a room. It is strongly suggested that students confirm their housing and pay the housing costs directly to the university as soon as possible. If a student completes a wire transfer for housing and is unsure if it will arrive on time, they should fax or email a copy of the payment to the Lund Housing Office.
For more information on housing please visit Lund's Housing website.
