Description

Kandidatkursen ges som 6:e och sista terminen på kandidatprogrammet i mänskliga rättigheter.
Du kommer nu att fördjupa studierna i mänskliga rättigheter genom betoning av kritisk analys, integration mellan teori och praktik och självständigt arbete individuellt och i grupp.
Vi inleder med att du på basis av dina erfarenheter från praktik eller utlandsstudier arbetar med och kritiskt analyserar ett praktiskt och faktiskt fall. Analysen görs individuellt men arbetsprocessen sker i grupp och viss litteratur är gemensam. Vi fortsätter med en individuell specialisering som är framåtblickande mot examensarbetet och som kombineras med seminarier och övningar i karriärplanering. Kursen avslutas med att du tillämpar dina insikter i teori och metod och dina fördjupade ämneskunskaper genom att du skriver ett vetenskapligt arbete.

Efter avslutad kurs har du en filosofie kandidatexamen i mänskliga rättigheter.

How to apply

Lund University uses a national application system run by University Admissions in Sweden. It is only possible to apply during the application periods: October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

Extended application deadline

Sometimes the application deadline is extended for a specific programme or course. In these cases you will find the message "open for late application" by the programme/course information on universityadmissions.se. You apply with the usual application steps. As long as this message is showing, it is possible to apply, but late applications are processed in order of date, so it is still important to apply as soon as possible. Please note that if the programme/course does not have an extended deadline, it is not possible to apply late.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.

Tuition Fees

Non-EU/EEA citizens

Citizens of a country outside of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are required to pay tuition fees. You pay one instalment of the tuition fee in advance of each semester.

Application fee

If you are required to pay tuition fees, you are generally also required to pay an application fee of SEK 900 (approximately EUR 100) when you apply at universityadmissions.se. You pay one application fee regardless of how many programmes or courses you apply to.
