International PhD courses

Our intensive courses offer a combination of lectures, seminars, and workshops for students to learn and receive guided feedback on their PhD projects from leading scholars.

External students can apply for one or several courses. The cost of each optional course is 5.000 SEK (the compulsory courses are free of charge). VAT (25%) will also be charged to students from outside Sweden and Swedish students paying for the course personally. Only Swedish governmental organizations are exempt from VAT.

Note: non-exempt students attending two courses will be charged a reduced rate of 7.500 SEK (plus VAT) for both courses and students who take three courses will be charged 10.000 SEK (plus VAT) in total. In some cases students from partner universities will be exempt from payment, see further information below.

Teacher training courses

During your PhD studies you have the opportunity to take teacher training courses in order to be qualified to teach in higher education after your studies. Division for Higher Education Development (former CED, Centre for Educational Development) at Lund University offers cross-disciplinary courses.

Courses at other universities

As a PhD student at the Department of Business Administration at Lund University you do not need to pay a course fee to attend PhD courses given by members belonging the U6 network, i.e. the Departments of Business Administration at the universities of Gothenburg, Linköping, Stockholm, Umeå and Uppsala.

Our department also has an agreement with the Doctoral School of Organization and Management Studies (OMS) at Copenhagen Business School allowing PhD students from our department to attend their PhD courses free of charge.
