Denna kurs (ÄFYD11) läses inom ämneslärarutbildningen (termin 3 för den som har fysik som andraämne). Den utlyses inte som fristående kurs så den kan inte sökas eller läsas av personer som inte är antagna till ämneslärarutbildningen.

Kursen syftar till att ge en introduktion till områden i universitetsfysiken relevanta för ämneslärare i fysik, som en grund för fortsatta studier i fysik. Speciellt lyfts grundläggande mekanik och ellära samt optik med våglära och kvantfysik som fundament för övrig fysik.

Delkurserna inom fysik ges på engelska, medan delkursen i didaktik ges på svenska.

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 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
