Expenses during courses

If you have expenses during courses for instance when you do field work, you may have use for these forms: Please note that the forms are only fully functional if you save them to your computer and then open them in Acrobat Reader!

Refunding of money

Lund University has an agreement with the bank Nordea. The bank will refund money to a personal bank account in Nordea.

If you haven't got a Nordea bank account you may apply for a transfer to a another bank. Please fill in this form (pdf; 119 kB), print it and hand it over to Violeta Kaleskovska at the Education Office. Otherwise you will get your money with postal giro form.

Unfortunally the form to Nordea are only available in swedish. You have to ask your teacher, your fellow students or the Education Office helping you to fill it in.
