What’s coming up
Lund University Arrival Day
On Arrival Day, international mentors and university staff will welcome you and help you settle into your new life in Lund and Sweden. We recommend all international students to attend. More information about arrival day can be found here.
Arrival Day marks the start of the University's orientation weeks offering a variety of activities that aim to help you settle in smoothly at the University and in student life. A full programme and possibilities to sign up and/or buy tickets will be available here.
Programme Introduction (mandatory)
The mandatory programme introduction will be held all day on August 31, 2018. This day is for all admitted students to the Master’s programmes in Development Studies, Global Studies and Social Studies of Gender. Please plan on this introduction lasting until 3 pm. A light lunch will be served.
Course Start (mandatory)
Monday, September 3rd is the official start of the autumn term and the first day of teaching on our courses.
Document Drop-off for Conditionally Admitted Students
Conditionally admitted students must submit their degree documents for verification by the Lund University Admissions Department before they can be registered to the programme. Once your documents have been verified they will be returned to you. Graduate School will be collecting degree documents from conditionally admitted students at the Graduate School Student Reception Desk on September 10th, at the following times:
- Social Studies of Gender: 9-10 a.m.
- Development Studies: 12 p.m. noon-1 p.m.
- Global Studies: 11-12 p.m. noon
As we are working with many students and sensitive documents, we ask that you arrive at the prescribed time for your specific programme.
If you have already uploaded or mailed your complete degree certificate to UniversityAdmissions.se (international degree students) or sent Graduate School your Swedish personal number (Swedish degree students) over the summer, you do not need to attend this meeting.
The Programme Introduction Day and the course introduction meeting are mandatory programme events. Students are expected to be in Lund and present at the Programme Introduction Day. If you cannot arrive in Lund on time and have not notified Graduate School, you may risk losing your place in the programme. Contact Milan Burke at milan [dot] burke [at] sam [dot] lu [dot] se as soon as possible if you will be arriving late.
