Folkuniversitetet Lund

Folkuniversitetet is an adult education association that offers a wide range of adult education all over Sweden. It is an association of five foundations: the extra-mural departments attached to the Universities of Stockholm, Uppsala, Göteborg, Lund and Umeå.

Our links to the universities allow us to provide, through lectures, study circles and seminars, information about the latest developments in reseach.

Folkuniversitetet is independent of all political, religious and trade union interests.
