     Academic life
     At Lund University, students experience an open, informal study environment, with
     teachers and students usually interacting on a first-name basis. This informal atmosphere
     promotes personal as well as intellectual development. Teaching is often done in small
     groups, which encourages dialogue and collaboration, and teachers are accessible outside
     of lecture hours. Students are often tasked with group work, which simulates the real
     dynamics of an international work environment.

     Student life
     Lund University is known for its vari-
     ety of student organisations, including
     the 'nations' of Lund, the Academic So-
     ciety and student unions. Together these
     student organisations have created many
     long-standing student traditions, and their
     combined activities, available through the
     'Studentlund' membership, form the heart
     and soul of student life in Lund today. It is
     no surprise that Lund is considered the best
     student city in Sweden!

 life at Lund University. The nations organise a lot of social
 activities, including pub nights, clubs (e.g. photography, bak-
 ing, music), sports as well as parties, concerts, cheap dinner
 nights and other social events. The nations are named after
 cities or regions across Sweden and, historically, they were a
 way for students from those areas to connect. Today, the na-
 tions are thriving student societies that offer something for
 every student, no matter what your interests are or where
 you are from.
