Lunds Universitet

Lund University, PO Box 117, 22 100 Lund, Sweden
4.08 / 5 based on 648 reviews.
Description:
Lund University, with its 7 faculties and a number of research centres and specialized institutes, is the largest unit for research and higher education in Sweden. Lund University was founded in 1666, partly in order to tie more closely to Sweden the provinces which had been ceded by Denmark in 1658. Since then, the University has developed into a modern, international centre for research and higher education. Read more

Pretty good.
Could've been better, but didn't lessen the overall experience.
Disappointing.
Facilities
Location
Cleanliness
Space
Type of housing: House for international students- off campus
Arranged by: Host university
If returning, I would choose: International student house
Why? Because it was a very good placement for me, a lot of international students integrating with eachother!
Personal comments:
The housing policy of Lunds Universitet is very well organized, almost everybody got a house around the city and lived with local students or international students. If something should be arranged for you, let it to the swedes, they're very meticulous and want everything to be arranged perfectly!

if someone wants to go out to enjoy the nightlife it is recommended to join a nation... besides going to a nation i would recommend to go to basilika, a nice club with live concerts at least every wednesday.

KEY:
Fantastic.
Pretty good.
Could've been a bit better.
Disappointing.
Variety of courses
Availability/access to resources
Interaction with teachers
Interaction with other international students
Interaction with local students
Course recommendations:
Choose at least one of the scandinavian studies courses independently of what your main studies might be. I think they give a very good insight in scandinavian life, culture and history

My level before: At ease in most situations
My level after: No problems in any areas (including slang)
How much did you improve your Swedish?
My level before: Did not speak it

Personal comments:
due to the fact that Swedes speak (almost) perfectly English and like to speak English, the need to learn the local language was not too high! So my swedish stayed on a rather moderate level; however my English improved much (which was my intention before going to Sweden)
