If the number of applicants exceeds available places, applicants are prioritised as follows:

  1. Doctoral students from the Faculty of Social Sciences, Lund University
  2. Doctoral students from other faculties at Lund University
  3. External doctoral students

Please note: Applicants from other faculties at LU and universities are required to pay a fee.

An email will be sent out to those who signed up and are eligible for the course around 6 weeks before the course begins, asking you to confirm your participation. A welcome letter including schedule, reading list, syllabus as well as any other information or tasks that the teacher wishes to include will then be sent to students accepted to the course 4 weeks before the course begins. Please inform the course administrator as soon as possible if you are no longer planning on taking the course as there might be other students on the reserve list.
