Spring Open Day
May 2024, Lund (preliminary)
On 15 May 2023, we held an Open Day in Lund to introduce prospective and admitted students to the student experience at Lund University. We are planning another Open Day in May 2024. More details will be announced later, but you can take a look at this year's schedule to get an idea of what the day can entail.
The programme – 15 May
8.30–9.00 AM: Registration, Palaestra et Odeum (Paradisgatan 4, 223 50 Lund)
9.00–9.15 AM: Welcome to Lund University!
A brief welcome session will be given by university staff to welcome you to our campus and give an overview of the day ahead.
9.15–10.45 AM: Information sessions
The group will be divided into prospective and admitted students.
Prospective students will have an information session from Lund University recruitment staff about the university, our 140+ English-taught programmes available, and how to apply.
Admitted students will have an information session from Lund University International Desk staff about pre-arrival tips, housing, and what to expect during Arrival Day and orientation.
10.45–11.15 AM: Short break to reconvene
Do you have any questions about this event, or our study opportunities in general? We will be happy to assist you!
11.15–12.00 PM: Example lecture from Dr. Katarzyna Herd
Join a sample lecture to get an idea of what a class might be like at Lund University: "The thing about football – the important thing about football – is that it is not just about football. Researching The Beautiful Game."
Katarzyna Herd is a researcher and lecturer at the Department of Arts and Cultural Sciences. She has written her PhD in Ethnology about how Swedish football clubs construct and use history. Herd has also had research projects about football transfers, Swedish-speaking football clubs in Finland, bad atmosphere in the work offices and popular perceptions of the police force. She teaches courses in our Master’s of Applied Cultural Analysis programme, as well as in the Swedish-taught programmes of Ethnology, and Intermediality and Digital Cultures.
12.00–1.00 PM: Lunch Break
You will have free time to have lunch somewhere nearby in Lund. You can also use this time to visit a department if you would like to reach out in advance to your study department of interest to see if they are available to meet with you.
1.00–2.00 PM: Current Student Mingle and Campus Services Fair
You will have the opportunity to meet several current students to ask them questions about their studies and life as a Lund University student. We will also have several tables with staff from various student services and offices around campus to speak with and ask questions about their services.
2.00–3.30 PM: Campus Tour
Come take a tour of our beautiful campus with a current student as your tour guide.
3.45–4.45 PM: Student life Q&A panel with current students
