When you have finished English: continuation course (31-45), you are eligible for ENGH04 (English 46-60 credits). In this course you will learn more about English linguistics and literature, but you will also improve your English proficiency, both orally and in writing. The same goes for your English vocabulary.

The contents of the course (English 46-60, ENGH04)

This course is a very interesting mix of English proficiency, literature and linguistics. Just like your previous English courses, this course consists of a number of modules that run partly in parallel:

  • History of Literature (7 credits)
  • Elective course (5 credits)
  • Vocabulary (3 credits)

The module called History of Literature deals with important parts of the entire history of British literature. You learn about the connections between literature, history, and culture, so this is a kind of continuation of the ENGA01 module called History and Culture, even though the main focus here is on literature, rather than culture and history. The module is examined through a final written exam.

You also get the chance to choose and take an elective course. It's normally the case that you can choose between two linguistic and two literary courses. If you are lucky, you get your first choice. Otherwise, you will get your first choice when you take English: Level 3.

Finally, there is a vocabulary module. It mainly consists of self-study and a final exam based on frequency word lists (rather than specific texts).


After the course (English 46-60, ENGH04)

This course makes you eligible for English: Level 3, which is the BA course you need in order to get a BA (Bachelor's degree) in English. Having 60 credits of English, in combination with other relevant university courses, also makes you considerably more competitive on the job market, for instance if you would like to work abroad or in companies or organisations with international profiles. 


  1. British Literary History, 7 ECTS
  2. Elective Course, 5 ECTS
  3. Vocabulary, 3 ECTS


The course is not open for applications through / next semester. Please contact the department for more information!

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.

Tuition Fees
