Lund University has a long and vibrant history covering almost 350 years of teaching. It has evolved from just a few hundred students and professors being paid with meat and grain into its present form, with around 41 000 students and a position of excellence in international teaching and research.


We tackle complex problems and global challenges and work to ensure that knowledge and innovations benefit society. We provide education and research in engineering, science, law, social sciences, economics and management, medicine, humanities, theology, fine art, music and drama.


Lund University is an innovative university. For several hundred years, researchers from Lund have made discoveries and created innovations that have been of great significance for wider society.
