The LU Glossary is intended to cover the English terminology needed to describe Lund University as a public institution of higher education.

It complements the Swedish-English glossary provided by the National Agency for Higher Education through adding terms unique to Lund University and specifying LU usage of common terms. The glossary also includes administrative terminology that LU shares with other public institutions.

Each glossary entry includes a Swedish term, an English term and a definition. In relevant cases, the entry may also include a source reference and an example of usage, in order to help the glossary user to use the term correctly.

The LU Glossary will be updated regularly, as new terms will emerge and old terms will change meaning or applicability.

We welcome suggestions of terms to be added to this glossary. Please email them to dl_oversattningkommunikation.luse.
