Description

Kursen utgör till stora delar en fortsättning på de moment som ingick i grundkursen på första terminen, men tyngdpunkten ligger här dels på det egna konstnärliga arbetet, dels på en bredare förståelse av det litterära skapandet. Det övergripande målet är att studenten ska kunna utvidga sin repertoar av litterära verktyg och tillämpa dessa i det egna skrivandet. I kursen ingår fördjupad kontakt med estetiskt banbrytande litterära verk, skrivövningar samt kontinuerlig granskning av kurskamraters texter. Här utvecklas också en fördjupad förståelse för de villkor som gäller för den litterära kommunikationen mellan författare och läsare, och vilka kriterier som används för att bedöma litterär och annan konstnärlig kvalitet. I olika övningar får studenten prova på att skriva inom olika stilregister, så som dialog, inre monolog och essäistisk berättande prosa. Det egna skrivandet ska vid kursens slut ha resulterat i ett manus om ca 30-60 sidor.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on universityadmissions.se. You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.

Tuition Fees
