For LUSEM students

Become an exchange student

One of our goals is to ensure that as many students as possible get to spend a semester of their education abroad at a prominent partner university. Our partner universities often have several international accreditations and are highly ranked in international contexts – a strong guarantee that you will continue to receive high-quality education during your semester abroad.

Our partner universities

We have more than 130 highly ranked partner universities in more than 30 countries around the world. Check the exchange database to see what options are available for your program!

All exchange places are applied for through the International Office at the School of Economics and Management, except for the one-year exchange places at the University of California, which are to be applied for separately through the UC Study Center.


Benefits of student exchange

  • Gain international experience and beneficial qualifications for your future career and personal development. 
  • Experience a different style of education and take courses of interest that you may not have otherwise been able to take.  
  • Improve your language skills.
  • Take part of well-organised introduction weeks with cultural activities, language courses and social activities.
  •  The academic credits you have earned may be transferred based on programme-specific requirements, and may be included in your degree.
  • Students who are not required to pay tuition fees in Sweden are also not required to pay tuition fees to the host university. Tuition-fee-paying students who are non-EU/EEA citizens will be required to pay a tuition fee to Lund University during their exchange semester, but not to the host university.
