I kandidatkursen i Allmän språkvetenskap får du möjlighet att bredda och fördjupa din kunskap inom lingvistisk forskning. Kursen består av en kandidatuppsats och två delkurser. De två delkurserna är 1. Introduktion till lingvistiska forskningsmetoder och 2. Introduktion till psykolingvistik (mer information till delkursernas innehåll finns på kursernas hemsidor).

Kandidatuppsatsen består av en självständig forskningsuppgift inom ämnet allmän språkvetenskap som redovisas på svenska eller engelska. Inom uppsatskursen förutsätts aktivt deltagande i seminarier med obligatoriska moment. I slutet av kursen försvarar man dels sin egen uppsats samt fungerar som opponent på någon annans uppsats. Uppsatsen behandlar ett ämne som bestäms i samråd med kursledare och handledare, och som kan falla inom vilken del av ämnet Allmän språkvetenskap som helst.

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 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.
