Most students come into contact with the Degree Office only when about to complete their studies, but it can be useful to know about the different degree requirements early on, in order to plan your studies. As a study advisor, it is particularly important that you communicate to students information about the different degrees and how the process of applying for a degree works.
For more information about degree regulations, see links below:
Detailed information about degrees and main fields of study is also presented on the web pages for students and the general public.
Information and support on degrees
The Degree Office, at the Student Affairs division, processes applications for degrees and evaluates international academic qualifications, with the exception of: degrees from the Faculty of Engineering (LTH) and the Faculty of Medicine; third cycle degrees from the Faculty of Law; and first and second cycle degrees from the Art Academy. These are managed by the respective faculty offices.
The Degree Office also provides the following services to staff at Lund University:
- information and support on degree issues, including, help with interpretation and advice on how to apply degree regulations.
- help with issues regarding international programmes, and how to transfer credits to a Swedish degree.
Applying for a degree – this is how it works
Students and doctoral students must themselves request to have their degree issued, once having completed their studies. Most degrees can be applied for through the Student Portal (Studentportalen). Students can also apply using a paper form, but we recommend submitting an online application, to facilitate the process for all parties.
Please note! The following degrees cannot be applied for through the Student Portal:
- old degrees (according to the 1993 degree ordinance)
- degrees from the Faculty of Engineering (LTH) and the Faculty of Medicine
- degrees from the Faculty of Law
- degrees in music and music education
- third cycle degrees
- degrees in education.
Processing usually takes 6–8 weeks, but may vary, depending on the work load.
