Initiating educational collaboration

The International Office at the Faculty of Medicine draws up, examines and negotiates international cooperation agreements and project applications concerning undergraduate, postgraduate and teacher mobility. These agreements or projects must be consistent with the interests of the Faculty and of Lund University. 

Contact the International Office at an early stage if you want to influence the content of agreements or project applications. Together we can draft an agreement or project application that is in line with everyone’s interests.
