The Sciences, Physics programme offered by Lund University studies the multiple challenges the planet is facing – in basic science when exploring fundamental forces and particles or the origin of the universe, planets and life – and in applied science to find sustainable energy sources, new technology on the nano-scale and tailor-made materials for industry, chemistry and medicine. 


The Sciences, Physics programme offered by the Lund University offers the whole three-year Bachelor’s programme in English, and since all of the courses on advanced level are given in English you are free to choose from a wide variety of courses. The courses join theory with laboratory exercises, giving you a good experience in performing and analysing experiments. 

As a physicist you will have a broad education and a great range of tools for problem solving, tools which you can apply in almost any situation. These tools include great mathematical and programming skills. On completion of this Bachelor’s programme, students are eligible for a number of different Master’s programmes at Lund University and elsewhere.

The programme starts with a year of basic mathematics, physics and an introduction to science. The second year gives the tools for further studies in physics, through more mathematics, theoretical and modern physics.

The third year consists of more modern physics and elective courses, to gain a deeper and broader understanding in physics. In the last semester students choose elective courses and a Bachelor project.  On completion of this Bachelor's programme, students are eligible for a number of different Master's programmes in Lund (and elsewhere).

Career prospects 

As a physicist, your expertise will be sought after on the labour market outside academia, in Sweden as well as internationally. Areas in which graduates find employment include information and communication technology, manufacturing, space exploration, life sciences, medicine, pharmacy, energy production, the environment, electronics and materials science.

Around the University and the centres, you will find a large number of innovation companies, making Lund a motor in the economy of southern Scandinavia. Physicists in Lund are working on the cutting edge of everything from particle physics at CERN to nanoscience and photonics.

Programme Structure

Courses include:
  • In the first semester, you will be studying mathematics, where you will learn basic calculus in one variable and basic algebra. 
  • In the second semester, you will study physics and the basics of mechanics, electromagnetism, optics, and waves and thermodynamics. 
  • In the third semester, you will learn more mathematical methods, and you will study quantum mechanics. 
  • The fourth semester is devoted to modern physics. 
  • The fifth semester consists of more modern physics and elective courses. 
  • During the sixth, semester you will combine elective courses with your diploma work.
