Internationalisation is one of Lund University's strategies as we seek to be a world-class university.
As a part of our internationalisation strategy Lund University cooperates with universities all over the world through bilateral agreements, research collaborations, networks and cooperation programmes. An important aim is prioritising long-term relationships.
Active member of global university networks
We are actively involved in the international research-intensive university network, Universitas 21 (U21) and also the League of European Research Universities (LERU).
Partnering with top universities worldwide
We have over 640 partner universities in almost 70 countries. Lund University both sends and receives the largest number of exchange students of all higher education institutions in Sweden. As a highly ranked University, our partners include other top-100 universities from across the world, including University of California, Melbourne University, University of British Colombia, Peking University, National University of Singapore, Hong Kong University, University of Edinburgh, New York University and many more.
We are active in a number of cooperation programmes such as Erasmus+, Nordplus and Linnaeus-Palme.

It is only by being alert to the world around us that we can advance and develop.
