Below please find the tentative schedule for the first course: "ACEP31 - Introduction to Asian Studies" (please note that changes in the schedule might occur).

We know that accommodation can be hard to find and it's usually most difficult in the beginning of the fall semester. If you are unable to find accommodation in Lund, try the surrounding cities/villages. The alternative of finding accommodation outside of Lund could be temporary during the fall since the housing situation usually improves during the spring semester and more rooms might become available. 

Between July 13-16, you can apply for student accommodation on the AFB website and you will then participate in a lottery for housing. Go to the AFB web site to find out more
