It is important to check your timetable and program structure to see if two or more courses overlap. Clashes in lab sessions and exercises are generally not a problem.

Learning Swedish

To meet the growing interest in Swedish language courses we offer our exchange students Swedish courses.

Swedish language course for engineering students

Courses taught at the Department of Scandinavian Languages at Lund University, free of charge for exchange students at LTH:

  • EXTA24 Beginner's level (7,5 credits, 5 weeks of full-time studies),
    equivalent to SVEE11
  • EXTA25 Continuation (7,5 credits, 5 weeks of full-time studies),

If you intend to take one of these courses you can add it to your Study Plan. 

Lessons are held twice a week at 17:00-20:00 (Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays), which is convenient for engineering, industrial design and architecture students who have busy day-time schedules.

Please note that the courses have limited number of seats and applying does not guarantee acceptance.

SVEE courses at Lund University

Lund University organizes similar courses for exchange students, the so-called SVEE courses (7.5 credits each). The SVEE courses are structured in five modules and are therefore suitable for you who already know Swedish.
