Type of studies: part time, 50 %, day
Study period: 2023-01-16 – 2023-06-04

in SOL:H104 hörsal
When you have finished English: continuation course (31-45), you are eligible for ENGH14 (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 course comprises 15 hp, making it a half-time course, but the course progression involves parallel courses during the last three quarters of the semester: from week six of the semester to the end of the semester. In practice, you therefore study at two-third speed once the course has started.
The contents of the course (English 46-60, ENGH14)
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:
- Linguistic Analysis (7.5 credits)
- Literary Analysis (7.5 credits)
Linguistic Analysis is a module where you get introduced to four important areas of English linguistics, typically morphology, syntax, semantics, and language history. This module is both theoretical and practical in nature. You learn about the therory behind a certain type of analysis, and you get to try out this type of analysis on English senetences, phrases or words. You also learn the basics of writing academic essays on linguistic topics.This module is examined through a number of papers or other types of written examination.
Literary Analyis is a module in which you get further training within the field of academic writing, but it is also a module where you learn more about literary analysis. You will produce a literary paper in which you make use of the discussions in class and where you analyse a text using the methods of analysis you have been introduced to in this course.
After the course (English 46-60, ENGH14)
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.
- Linguistic Analysis, 7.5 credits
- Literary Analysis, 7.5 credits

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.
Full course tuition fee: SEK 27,500
First payment: SEK 27,500
Citizens of a country outside of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay tuition fees. You pay one instalment of the tuition fee in advance of each semester.
EU/EEA citizens and Switzerland
There are no tuition fees for citizens of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.
If you are required to pay tuition fees, you are generally also required to pay an application fee of SEK 900 (approximately EUR 100) when you apply at universityadmissions.se. You pay one application fee regardless of how many programmes or courses you apply to.
