Learn Yiddish and take part of a rich cultural heritage!
Yiddish is one of Sweden's national minority languages, and Lund University is the only university in Scandinavia that offers teaching and conducts research in Yiddish. Knowledge of Yiddish is valuable for those who want to learn more about Yiddish culture, work with language understanding and/or conduct research in the plethora of writings and primary materials that remains unedited or untranslated.
The course is the first of our two courses at beginner level and is based on a study of simple dialogues and texts in Yiddish with elementary vocabulary and basic grammatical structures. Particular emphasis is placed on communicative skills. You get to start learning to speak and write the language, practice listening comprehension and do translation exercises between Yiddish and Swedish/English.
- Yiddish Grammar and Text Study I, 7.5 ECTS
- Oral and Written Language Proficiency I, 7.5 ECTS

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.
