Search degree projects


Before writing your own degree project, it may be helpful to read what others have written in the same field. In the LUP Student Papers database we have gathered a large proportion of the published degree projects completed at Lund University. In most cases, the material is available in full-text documents that can be downloaded.

Advanced search
