Welcome to Lund!

Degree seeking students | Autumn 2021

Kungshuset and Lund Cathedral.

A warm welcome to Lund University and the School of Economics and Management! These pages are a collection of information that will be useful for you when you are preparing for your degree studies.

Regarding Covid-19 and the autumn semester of 2021

If you are a newly admitted degree student, you probably have questions about how the coronavirus pandemic will affect you and your future studies. Since the Covid-19 outbreak, Lund University has carefully followed the decisions and recommendations from the Swedish Government and the Public Health Agency.

We hope and make plans for that the autumn semester 2021 will be conducted as regular campus-based teaching, including classroom-based teaching. All activities at Lund University, with very few exceptions, has been conducted digitally since March 2020. We all want to return to campus as soon as possible, but at present we know very little about what the rest of the year will look like.

There are two possible scenarios for the autumn semester. The first scenario is a situation with no restrictions where we can return to on-campus teaching, and the second scenario includes continued restrictions and online teaching. At LUSEM we are planning for on-campus activities for the autumn semester, but we are also preparing for a scenario where the welcome meeting and initial courses may be conducted online. Therefore, we urge all students to arrange for studies in Sweden, including residence permit (if applicable), funding and housing.

As we come closer to the autumn semester, we will inform you about which route we have to take. The Lund University Coronavirus FAQ will also be updated regularly throughout spring and summer 2021.

Update 7 May 2021

Although we are likely to start our semester online, we expect to be back on campus during the autumn semester. We therefore strongly recommend that you are in Lund by the start of the autumn semester, as we can not guarantee that you can continue your studies online when we go back to campus.
