Incoming Master’s programme students autumn 2020

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 Master’s studies.

Arrangements for the autumn semester

Lund University School of Economics and Management (LUSEM) hopes that the autumn semester 2020 will be conducted as regular campus-based teaching, including classroom-based teaching as well as offering students the opportunity to go on exchanges etc. At present no one can guarantee that this will be possible. LUSEM is closely monitoring the situation and follows the advice of national governmental agencies.

LUSEM is preparing to deliver all degree programmes online during the autumn of 2020 if admitted students cannot travel to Lund. Hence, admitted BSc or MSc students that accept a study seat at LUSEM will be able to carry out their studies online if the global situation regarding Covid-19 demands this.

The decision regarding regular campus-based education vs. online education will be made in mid-June. In the meanwhile, continue to arrange for studies in Sweden, including residence permit (if applicable), funding and housing.

FAQ for newly admitted degree students

This FAQ will be updated regularly throughout spring and summer 2020. Due to new regulations and directives from the Swedish Government, and new decisions taken regularly at the University, many questions cannot be answered at this time and some answers will change before the start of the semester. Please check back regularly for updates!
