Where you'll study

Founded over 100 years before the United States declared independence, Lund University’s history goes way back. Its earliest students attended classes in a local cathedral and one of the king’s residences. Today, it is a major European research hub and a great choice for majors in engineering as well as the social sciences, economics, business, humanities, sciences, and law. Lund University is home to the world’s leading electron accelerator facility, the Max IV laboratory, and the soon-to-be most powerful neutron source in the world, the European Spallation Source. As the most popular institution of higher education in Sweden, it offers the broadest range of courses and programs. Attending class at the main campus buildings, your daily activities will be in the center of Lund, just a short walk from the city railway station.


Optional field trips and activities to introduce the local culture are available through your host university. Most events are free or discounted, but some come with an additional cost not included in UCEAP fees.
