SVEE: Swedish language courses
Lund University offers Swedish Language courses to exchange students in all faculties. The courses are offered exclusively to exchange students.
As an added value to the student exchange programme and to awaken an interest in the language and culture of the host country as well as to facilitate communication, Lund University offers Swedish Language courses to exchange students.
Depending on availability, SVEE courses can be taken as part of, or in addition to, your approved course load. Courses are offered from level 1–4.
Be aware that the SVEE courses may not be recognised by your home university for credit transfer purposes. It is therefore important that you check this information with your coordinator here in Lund and your academic advisor at your home university.
Teaching is offered through different modules worth 7.5 credits each. Regular students, regardless if they study at bachelor, master or doctoral level, are not eligible to register to these courses.

During autumn 2023, level 7 and 8 will be offered together with the students studying SFSH31 (part time, online). Space permitting, levels 5 and 6 will be offered together with regular students studying SFSH30 (full time, campus).
Always check your options with your LU coordinator first!
Workload, credits, attendance and withdrawals
The workload for these courses is as demanding as other regular courses. It is highly recommended to participate in as many of the lessons offered as possible, to increase your chances for getting a grade of pass in the end.
SVE-courses must be an integral part of the student's study plan in Lund and as with all other courses you must inquire at your home university if they will also recognise the credits that you might obtain in these language courses.
If you wish to withdraw from a course to which you have been admitted you must notify both your own coordinator and the course administrator.
