- the Short Version
Lunds doktorandkår (LDK) guards the interests of doctoral students at Lund University. We organise social events, help fellow postgraduates and represent all doctoral students' interests both locally and centrally within Lund University.
What about Studentlund?
We don’t want to force you to join a society that you may not be interested in. Consequently, you do not have to be a member of Studentlund to become a full-fledged LDK member. That being said, we strongly urge you to join Studentlund (which includes nations and the academic-society) if you want to sign up for student housing, get grub form the nation next door or just go to the undergrads pubs and clubs.
But I'm a doctoral student at LTH...
No worries! Even though we would love to hang out with you - doctoral students at the Faculty of Engineering are officially organised within Doktorandsektionen (Dokt) at Teknologkåren (TLTH). Usually, doctoral students from both LDK and Dokt meet up for social events, gatherings and important meetings so we will most definitely see you around!
