International opportunities for LUSEM students

Lund is just the starting point. As a student at LUSEM, you have plenty of opportunities to go abroad during your studies. Take the chance to gain international experience by spending a summer, or a whole semester, at one of LUSEM's partner universities.

LUSEM's 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.


Going on an exchange means spending a semester abroad at one of LUSEM's partner universities. The academic credits you have earned may be transferred based on programme-specific requirements, and may be included in your degree. 

You have the option to go on an exchange semester if you are studying:

  • A Bachelor's programme at LUSEM.
  • A Bachelor's programmes that study part of their education at LUSEM.
  • Freestanding courses with the aim of earning a Bachelor's degree from LUSEM.
