ONCAMPUS Lund Sweden is a partnership with Lund University, Sweden. Lund University is ranked 60th in the world1, a member of Universitas 21 (U21) and is Sweden’s top-ranked university. A non-profit, public university with 42,000 students it is one of the oldest and broadest universities in northern Europe and offers the largest range of English-taught Master’s programmes in Scandinavia.
ONCAMPUS Lund Sweden will be the first on-campus preparation course in Sweden and will enable international students to improve their English while learning the study skills and research methods needed for Master’s degree studies. Upon completion of the Pre-Master’s Preparation Programme, successful students will be well-placed to continue onto their chosen Master’s degree.
Students will live and study in the city of Lund, located in Southern Sweden, one of the fastest-growing research hubs in Europe. Sweden is the home of the Nobel Prize, and internationally recognised as one of the world’s most innovative, creative and safest countries in the world.
The major part of the University is in Lund – a city of contrasts where 1,000 years of history meets the latest in modern science and research infrastructure. Lund is considered the best student city in Sweden with the unique combination of traditional student nations (social clubs), an academic society and student unions organising events and activities year round.

Our partnership with ONCAMPUS will further strengthen our position as Sweden’s most international university and allow us to widen participation for academically talented students from across the globe.”
