Ciência sem Fronteiras - Brazilian scholarship programme

Lund University is Scandinavia's top-ranked, full-scale university and the #1 choice for international students coming to Sweden.

We are delighted to participate in Ciência sem Fronteiras and welcome Brazilian undergraduate students and researchers to experience global class environments and exposure to cutting-edge research, within an international city where 90% of the population speak fluent English.

Ultrasound, dialysis and Bluetooth technology are all examples of revolutionary discoveries that have their roots in research at Lund University and the business sector in Lund boasts an impressive breadth of knowledge-intensive companies at the forefront in their fields.  Sony Mobile, ST Ericsson, Tetra Pak, Gambro and Alfa Laval are among the large, well-known companies with which Lund University cooperates. In addition Lund is home to over 30 world-leading research environments and is the location for two of Europe’s largest research facilities currently being built; ESS and MAX IV.

The city of Lund (population 110,000) is located in southern Sweden, which has a warmer winter climate than other parts of Sweden and there are many beautiful beaches close by.

Lund is just 10 minutes by train to Malmö (Sweden's 3rd largest city) and 35 minutes by train to Copenhangen in Denmark. See a short video about the city of Lund.
