International activities in Sweden

Do you want to get involved in international activities in Sweden? See the range of options below.

Seminars & conferences

During the academic year, the Faculty of Medicine and external actors arrange international seminars and conferences – keep a look out for them and take part!

Courses

There are international courses both in and outside your study programme that you, as a student, can take part in.

Mentors

Both the Faculty of Medicine and Lund University offer opportunities to become an international mentor.

International Buddy Group

At the Faculty of Medicine, the mentor programme is called International Buddy Group and is run by two of our students. Together, the participants take the faculty’s exchange students under their wings. In recent years, they have organised a range of events including pot luck suppers and several outdoor activities.
