International exchange

As an employee of Lund University, you can visit one of our many partner universities in Europe with the help of funding from the EU programme Erasmus+ to gain international experience and qualifications, and develop or specialise existing contacts.

Teaching staff can apply for funding for teaching, lectures, seminars, supervision and examination (at least two days). All employees can apply for funding for job shadowing, study visits, participation in courses, seminars or workshops that clearly relate to their own work (at least two days).

Contact the international coordinator at the department for any questions and to show the department that you are interested in an international exchange.
