About Lund University

Lund University seeks to be a world-class university that works to understand, explain and improve our world and the human condition.

A world top 100 university

The University is ranked as one of the top 100 in the world. We tackle complex problems and global challenges and work to ensure that knowledge and innovations benefit society. We provide education and research in engineering, science, law, social sciences, economics and management, medicine, humanities, theology, fine art, music and drama.

Our 42,000 students and 7,400 employees are based at our campuses in Lund, Malmö and Helsingborg. The University has a turnover of around SEK 8 billion (EUR 800 million), of which two thirds is in research and one third in education.

An international university

We are an international university with global recruitment. We cooperate with 600 partner universities in over 70 countries and are the only Swedish university to be a member of the strong international networks LERU (the League of European Research Universities) and Universitas 21.

World-leading research facilities

Two of the world’s foremost research facilities for materials research and life sciences are established in Lund – the synchrotron radiation facility MAX IV, which was inaugurated in June 2016, and the European Spallation Source (ESS) which will feature the world’s most powerful neutron source when it opens for research in 2023. These will be of decisive importance for materials and life sciences and for industrial development.

In Lund, Medicon Village has also been established and offers a unique environment for life sciences; integrating research, innovation and enterprise creates the conditions for improved health and quality of life.
