Exchange studies via University Wide Agreements (Uniwide)

As a student at Lund University, in addition to the exchange opportunities offered by the faculty, you can study abroad for 1–2 semesters via the Lund University Wide Agreements (Uniwide).

As a student at the Faculty of Medicine, you undertake this exchange outside your study programme, with the exception of students in the Biomedicine programmes. This means that you need to take an approved leave from your study programme. 

Within Uniwide, you cannot apply for courses at partner universities’ medical faculties or seek clinical placements/workplace training. Studying abroad does not count towards the degree, with the exception of the Bachelor's and Master's programme in Biomedicine and Master's programme in Public Health.
