TBA - Document Drop-off for Conditionally Admitted Students

Conditionally admitted students must submit their degree documents for verification by the Lund University Admissions Department before they can be registered to the programme. Once your documents have been verified they will be returned to you. Graduate School will be collecting degree documents from conditionally admitted students at the Graduate School Student Reception Desk at the following times:

  • Social Studies of Gender: 12:00
  • Development Studies: 13:00
  • Global Studies: 14:00

As we are working with many students and sensitive documents, we ask that you arrive at the prescribed time for your specific programme.

If you have already uploaded or mailed your complete degree certificate to (international degree students) or sent Graduate School your Swedish personal number (Swedish degree students) over the summer, you do not need to attend this meeting.

Arriving late?

The Programme Introduction Day and the course introduction meeting are mandatory programme events. Students are expected to be in Lund and present at the Programme Introduction Day. If you cannot arrive in Lund on time and have not notified Graduate School, you may risk losing your place in the programme. Contact Milan Burke at milan.burke [at] as soon as possible if you will be arriving late.

Check all the important dates to the right.
