Lund University


Lund is the most popular study location in Sweden, with a broad range of programmes and courses. The University has a distinct international profile, with partner universities in 70 countries.

At the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, which is the department for GEM students, we have more than 30 nationalities among the staff and mostly international students. 

The Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science 

The administrative contact point for GEM in Lund is the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science (INES) together with the GIS Centre. Central in our research is the analysis of the processes behind the forming and functioning of our natural environment. Activities are concerned with both natural processes and the human influence on the Earth system.  

The department is involved in research, academic education and external activities, such as consultancies and cooperation with authorities and international organisations.
