Find exchange courses

As an exchange student, you are expected to have a full-time study plan of 30 credits per semester during your study period at Lund University.

Courses offered by LTH

You can freely choose courses suitable for exchange students from different programmes at LTH, as long as you have the academic requirements and the necessary supporting documents. Please observe that some courses have a limited number of seats.


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