Next steps for accepted exchange students

Preparing for your exchange

Once you have received your Letter of Acceptance you can start preparing to come to Lund University as an exchange student.  Remember that the person that sends your Letter of Acceptance is your coordinator and key contact at Lund University.

If you are coming to Lund through the Erasmus+ exchange programme, you need to create an Online Learning Agreement (OLA) in your home university's exchange application system. This should preferably be done after you have received confirmation of your courses in SoleMove and should reflect your confirmed courses. The course admission process is usually finished around mid-to-late May or November, depending on the semester. After your home university has approved your OLA, it will be reviewed and digitally signed by the responsible contact at Lund University. Therefore, it is important that you refer to the right 'academic responsible contact at receiving institution' (Lund University) in your OLA. Otherwise, it may get rejected at first, and sent back to you for edits.

If you are from a non-EU/EEA country, you will need to apply for a residence permit. When applying for a residence permit, you will need to prove that you have health insurance. To do this, it is usually enough to enclose your Letter of Acceptance with your residence permit application.

The pre-arrival guide for international students provides detailed information to help you prepare for your stay in Lund. It also contains the answers to most of the questions we receive! Please take the time to read it and follow the other practical steps that are explained in the guide. 

We encourage you to plan to arrive in Lund on Arrival Day to have a smooth welcome and support services readily available to make your arrival as straightforward as possible.

Starting your exchange studies

Once you arrive at Lund University, you follow the orientation schedule, which includes attending the mandatory registration day to meet with your coordinator.

Lund University does not have an ”add/drop period”. If you wish to change a course, you must discuss this with your coordinator at Lund University as soon as possible after arrival. However, please note that it can be difficult to change courses. Our ability to change your courses depends on whether you meet admission requirements and if there are still places available on the course.

About the Orientation Weeks

During your studies

If you have any problems during your exchange (illness, study worries, serious housing issues, other questions or concerns), please contact your coordinator for help. 

On our website, you can also find useful information about services available to current students, such as academic support, student health.

Our student services

Extending your exchange

If you would like to extend your exchange and have another semester at Lund University, you need to talk to your home university first. They will get in touch with your coordinator at Lund University to see whether there are opportunities for a continued exchange, based on the balance of exchange students between the two universities.

Transcripts from Lund University

At the end of your exchange, you are responsible for printing a Lund University verifiable transcript of records and sending it to your home university by following these instructions:

Transcript of records from Ladok

If you require a signature of documents like “certificate of attendance” or “learning agreement”, please contact your coordinator at Lund University.

Farewell reception and becoming a Lund University Ambassador

Near the end of each semester, Lund University hosts a farewell event for international students.

An information event is also held near the end of each semester to support students in their new role as a Lund University Ambassador once they return to their home university.

Having completed your studies, you are now a valued alumna/alumnus of Lund University!

Be sure to register in our alumni network so we can continue to keep in touch.
