Learn continually – there’s always “one more thing” to learn!

This quote is from Apple co-founder Steve Jobs and summarizes today’s post pretty well. Lifelong learning, or the ”ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated” pursuit of knowledge throughout life, is essential to keep your personal and professional skills in shape over time. Even if you have left Lund University a year, five years or many decades ago, there are always opportunities to come back to learn more. For a course, programme, professional education or online opportunities.

Below we have gathered a list of different opportunities for you to learn new skills and acquire new knowledge from Lund University. Note that the application deadlines for courses and programmes taught in Swedish are tomorrow, 15 April!
