					STUDYING ABROAD

Any inquiries in the first instance to the International Coordinator, Guy Baeten, at
guy.baeten@keg.lu.se.




For those interested, whether undergraduates, Master or PhD students, there are
plenty of opportunities to study abroad for one or two Semesters. The Department,
the Faculty of Social Sciences and the University of Lund have plenty of student
exchange agreements with universities across the globe. Some application
procedures are simple and straightforward, others are a bit tougher, depending on
the choice of university. If you are seriously considering studying abroad, you
should in the first instance make an appointment with your International
Coordinator, in order to find a match between your preferences and the actual
exchange possibilities. Your study credits acquired abroad will normally count in
Sweden and go into LADOK.

To start with: please note that you are free to apply for studies anywhere, with or
without exchange agreement, subject to local conditions. If you decide to study
abroad without taking part in one of the exchange agreements available, you would
be a so-called ‘free mover’. That is perfectly okay, but you will have to sort out
everything yourself, and, in most cases, you would be charged tuition fees. For
more information, see http://www.lu.se/utbildning/studera-utomlands/soek-paa-
egen-hand. If you decide to participate in an exchange program, you can avoid
paper work, you can often avoid tuition fees, you often have access to university
accommodation, and you normally receive a (small) bursary covering (part of) your
study costs abroad.

In the case of undergraduates, exchange agreements are open to all, but we would
normally recommend that you would study abroad during the third year (C-level)
of your studies here in Lund.

For general information about studying abroad, see

What follows is an overview of exchange possibilities currently (Spring 2011)
available.
NEIGHBOURING COUNTRIES

   1. Nordplus

The Department has an agreement with the Universities of Stockholm, Åbo
(Finland) and Oslo to allow undergraduate students to study one Semester abroad
(this would exclude Stockholm for Lund-based students).

For more information, see http://www.lu.se/utbildning/studera-utomlands/soek-

EUROPE

   2. Erasmus

The Department has currently exchange agreements with universities in
Manchester, London, Belfast, Athens, Groningen (Netherlands), Leuven (Belgium),
Berlin, Göttingen, Eichstätt, Muenster (all Germany). Some are for undergraduates
only, others are also open for graduates and/or researchers. The application
procedure is simple, and you will receive a bursary of €1,500 (as of 2009-10). Your
study will be free of charge. The minimum requirement is that you stay one
Semester and obtain 30 European credits (ECTS) (that is the equivalent of 20
Swedish credits). You can stay two Semesters and obtain 60 ECTS. After completing
the application form (see below) and an initial talk with your International
Coordinator, you will apply yourself at the university abroad, and comply your
own study program. You will receive application details from your coordinator.

   3. Erasmus Intensive Program

The Department cooperates with universities in Barcelona, Budapest, Manchester
and Vienna to run an annual two-week long Summer School around ‘Environmental
Conflicts and Justice’. The first School will be held in Barcelona, June-July 2010.
Normally, there will be more Summer Schools with the same topic in 2011 and
2012 in Barcelona. Any Master or PhD student who is interested in the topic can in
principal apply. Lund has ten places available. Costs will be largely covered by the
program. Please get in touch with Guy Baeten who coordinates this program for
