Application for courses
Most Master's degree students at LTH must apply for courses before each study period or semester. This does not apply to students in Energy-efficient and Environmental Building Design, Industrial Design, FIPDes and IMFSE who have pre-selected courses. Students must apply for all courses in the program, including compulsory courses. It is the responsibility of the department to finalize the registration once the students have attended the first lecture.
Starting from the 2nd semester until graduation, all Master's degree students at LTH are required to register as active students in the student portal at the beginning of each semester. This is called the "Semester Registration". This is a way to show that you intend to continue your studies in the programme during the coming semester and should be done even if you are in the final stages of your education.
Registration for exams
All written invigilated examinations are assessed anonymously at LTH. Students are required to register for their exams. The registration is done in the Student Portal.
If you need academic advice, help with your study technique, somebody to talk to about a personal problem or methods to handle stress or exam anxiety, then we are here for you. LTH and LU offer different services to students in need of support.
All international master’s students are covered by an insurance through Lund university. This insurance includes accident coverage, costs for home transport in case of serious illness or accident, liability coverage and legal expenses. The insurance is valid while you are in Sweden. For claims you need to complete a form and hand in to the international office.
If you wish to take a break from your studies, you need to formally inform LTH. Otherwise you risk losing your seat in the programme. Make sure you talk to your international coordinator about issues related to your residence permit, insurance, tuition fees, course plan etc. Students who wish to terminate their studies before acquiring a degree must immediately notify LTH.
Degree project guidelines
The two-year Master’s programmes in Engineering, Architecture and Design include a degree project of 30 credits. Here you will find a brief overview of what the degree project involves. The emphasis is on providing short and practical advice. In the text you will also find links to relevant forms, e.g. Enrolment Form for Degree Project.
LTH holds two graduation ceremonies per year to honour our graduating students. No invitations will be sent out to Master's degree students automatically. Only students who fulfil certain criteria and have expressed their interest in participating will be invited.
Degree certificate - how to apply
The degree certificate is issued, free of charge, by the degree office at LTH, situated in the E-building on the 5th floor. You need to apply for the degree certificate once you have completed all your courses and all the final grades have been reported, by your lecturers, into the student register, LADOK. It is also possible to apply for certified copies for a fee.
The Alumni Network
The Alumni Network is a free professional and social network for everyone who has studied at Lund University. Over 30 000 alumni, located around the world, have joined this network. This is a great resource for career development, making new contacts and staying in touch with old classmates and friends.
The Lund/Malmö/Copenhagen has been ranked as one of the most innovative regions in the world. We have gathered links to information about internship opportunities, career service, incubators and more to help our students progress into professionals in their field of study.
