In view of the war in Ukraine, Lund University has signed a general student exchange agreement with the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv. So far, five students have started studies within the exchange and preparations are being made for a further 45 places.

“It is very pleasing that we have been able to arrange an agreement in such a short time. An exchange agreement provides security for both students and the University, as an agreement entails a counterpart to report back to,” says Pro Vice-Chancellor Kristina Eneroth.

Since the outbreak of the war, Lund University has tried to find new avenues to retain the ten Ukrainian students who were already here, but also find paths for more Ukrainian students to start studying at the University. The rapid creation of scholarships for these students has been part of the work.

“Several problems have been resolved in that the European exchange programme, Erasmus, opened up options to include Ukrainian exchanges and give the students scholarships,” says Richard Stenelo, International Director at Lund University.

In total, Lund University now has access to EUR 500 000 of funding for Ukrainian students.
