Exchange students coming to Sweden

Lund University was founded in 1666 and is one of the oldest universities in Scandinavia. The combination of old traditions and history together with the bustling student life makes Lund a great place to live and study. Lund University is ranked as one of the top twenty universities in Europe for student exchange and receives more than 1500 exchange students per year from all over the world.

The Department of Political Science is committed to creating a stimulating study and research environment, and crucial to this commitment is the range of high quality resources and services available to students.

The lecture halls, café, library as well as the student union house, are all assembled in the same area comprising a united campus. Apart from the daily activities of education and research, the premises are also used for conferences and seminars.

We offer more than 300 courses in English and a chance to experience a unique European culture in a country where English is widely spoken.

The Department of Political Science wishes all incoming exchange students a warm welcome to our department and to Lund University! We hope you will have a fruitful and enjoyable stay with us!
