SVEE: Application and placement
How to apply
In order to apply for a SVEE course you should include it in your online application. Talk to your LU-coordinator if you have questions about how to do it!
If you wish to apply to a SVEE course you must include it in the same request to your coordinator as with your other courses. A full-time semester normally consists of 30 Swedish credits (=30 ECTS) to which a SUSA-course may be added. You must consult your Lund coordinator if you may take more or less credits.
If you wish that the credits that you get for these courses be recognised by your home university then you must ask the coordinator at your home university about this in good time.
Students from LTH
Students admitted through agreements with the Faculty of Engineering (LTH) must contact their coordinator if they wish to apply to Swedish Levels 1–2 since alternative Swedish courses (EXTA24 to 25) are offered specially designed for LTH incoming exchange students.
If you have completed level A2 on the CEFR-scale you can apply for SVEE12 or SVEE13. If you have completed level B1 or higher with a successful result you can apply for SVEE14 or SVEE15 (see above). An online placement test will be arranged by the Centre for Languages and Literature - see below!
Exchange students may normally be admitted to one module during their whole stay in Lund. Some faculties allow students to continue to a higher level depending on availability and the student's performance.
There will be a placement test for students who applied for the higher levels SVEE12, SVEE13 and SVEE14.
Exemptions (=no need for the placement test):
- If you follow the SUSA12 course in August, that course will serve as placement test and you do not have to participate in the placement test mentioned above.
- If you already passed the previous level of SVEE or EXTA, you do not have to participate in the placement test either.
- If you intend to follow SVEE11 or EXTA24 during the first period, and SVEE12 or EXTA25 after that, your first course will serve as placement for the second one, and you do not have to do the placement test.
The test date for autumn 2023 will be 21 August at 17.00 (Central European time). The test is performed via email: You get an email with the test at 5 PM on 21 August, and will have two hours at your disposal to fill it in and send it back for correction.
