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 awake 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, SVE courses can be taken as part of, or in addition to, your approved course load. Courses are offered from level 1–5.
Be aware that the SVE 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 i Lund and your academic advisor at your home university.
Teaching is offered through five (5) modules all of them worth 7.5 credits. Regular students, regardless if they study at bachelor, master or doctoral level, are not eligible to register to these courses.

Teaching is offered through five (5) modules, all of them worth 7.5 credits each. Please click on a course to get to the course home page, were you can find schedules, literature lists etc. The information is normally updated at least a month before course starts.

Please note! Swedish for Exchange Students, Levels 5, 6, 7 and 8 are specially designed for exchange students who have profuse knowledge in Swedish and have this language as a major subject at their home university (i.e. skandinavister). During spring 2020 these courses will be offered as very intensive fulltime and/or part time courses. Exchange students studying level 5-8 will do so together with other regular students studying level 5-8.
Workload, credits, attendance and withdrawals
The workload for these courses is as demanding as other regular courses. Attendance is mandatory and the rate of absences will affect negatively the final grades.
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.
