Within Europe

Student exchange with grants

If you want to study outside Sweden but within the Nordic countries or Europe, you can apply for a Nordplus or Erasmus+ grant. The grant is intended to cover extra costs you incur in conjunction with your stay abroad. In order to apply for a Nordplus or Erasmus+ grant, you must have been nominated for exchange studies through Lund University’s central exchange programme or through your department/faculty.

Fieldwork with grants

There are other study abroad programmes that offer generous grants, such as the Minor Field Studies (MFS) programme for fieldwork and the Crafoord Foundation.
