Courses for teaching in higher education

The courses for teaching in higher education are mandatory for everyone who teaches at Lund University. Courses are offered by the Division for Higher Education Development as well as the faculties.

Lund University's employment act requires at least five weeks of course work for academic positions. This requirement is met by taking these courses:

  • Teaching and learning in higher education 
  • Course design in higher education.

Doctoral students who teach are required to take at least the first of these two courses. 

Teachers, who supervise students in doctoral education, must have undergone special supervisor training:

  • Doctoral supervision - introduction


Courses spring 2022 

Course fee

The courses offered by the Division for Higher Education Development (AHU) are paid for by the Faculty of Social Sciences if you are admitted to the course and employed at the faculty. If, however, you fail to attend without having cancelled your registration at least 14 days prior to the start of the course, your department will be charged a fee.
