Description

Välkommen till författarskolan. Kursen LUFA05 är det första steget i den tvååriga utbildningen i litterär gestaltning vid Lunds universitet.

 

Litterär gestaltning


Kursen LUFA05 är en introduktion till litterär gestaltning, till vad det innebär att utbilda sig i ämnet, till det egna skrivandet och till författarrollen. I de olika delkurserna tränas grundläggande litterär berättarteknik och kunskaper inhämtas om vad som kännetecknar litterärt språk. Stor vikt läggs vid skrivande som en ständig, kritisk och självkritisk process, samt vid hur man ger och tar konstruktiv kritik i form av text- och handledningssamtal.

 

Individuell handledning

Redan tidigt på kursen tilldelas varje student en individuell handledare som skall hjälpa studenten att ge form och innehåll åt det egna skönlitterära skrivandet. Målet för det egna skönlitterära skrivandet under den första kursen är att studenten dels ska ha en klar uppfattning om vad det är för bok som den resterande delen av utbildningen skall ägnas åt, dels ska ha skrivit tio till trettio sidor på denna sin kommande bok.

 

Skrivande under två år

Kursen LUFA05 ger en introduktion till ämnet och utbildningen, och är en del av ett studieförlopp som kan leda fram till konstnärlig kandidatexamen i litterär gestaltning, med ett skönlitterärt verk av hög kvalitet som examensarbete.

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

Non-EU/EEA citizens

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.
