Teaching and Research of Highest Quality
The Master´s Programmes at Lund University are structured in response to student demand, combined with a strong cooperation with the business world, as well as being closely tied to current research. The Swedish educational system is student-centred, based on open, informal relations between students and teachers, and where personal initiative and critical thought are encouraged. Swedish universities are renowned for their investigative research and independent thinking, and this reputation is cemented with rigorous quality control and internationally recognised degrees.
Lund´s geographical location
Lund is located in southern Sweden, right next door to Copenhagen, Denmark and Northern Europe. The Danish-Swedish Øresund Region is one of Europe´s most dynamic areas. In Lund, "abroad" is close by: the trip by train or car to the largest Scandinavian city, Copenhagen, takes only 40 minutes over the Øresund Bridge, while Malmö, the third largest city in Sweden, is only a 15-minute train ride away.
Lund, a City of Student Nations
Lund is recognised both for its historic past and for recent development and success. Students form the majority of Lund´s 100,000 inhabitants, giving the city a youthful multicultural atmosphere. The large student population also contributes to an active cultural life, with a wide range of activities and entertainment. The heart of student life in Lund is organised around the student societies called "nations", essentially large clubs offering entertainment and opportunities to socialise.
