The Novice Week Spring 2018

The Novice Week takes place in Lund between Monday, 8th of Januari until Saturday the 13th of Januari. It is an intensive week with a great variety of activites, all of them focusing on you getting to know as many of your new class mates as possible, and of course having a whole lot of fun!

More than 200 new students participate in the week where you will be divided into groups of approximately 20 people each. There are experienced students acting as mentors (faddrar) during the week, and they will show you all the best sides of the ”Lunda-life”.

"We make sure that the new students at LUSEM get the best welcome to Lund they could possibly get. With one of the most intense weeks you will experience in Lund, we provide everyone participating with an unforgettable time during which you get to know your future classmates."

What is the Novice Committee?

The Novice Committee consists of 12 members that work throughout the year to plan and form the Novice Week that starts both of the semesters at LUSEM. The Novice Committee are also the ones in charge during the week. You can spot us by looking for the bright shade of blue shirts.

Who do we work with?

The Novice Committee could not operate without its very important mentors, so called “Faddrar”. The Faddrar are in charge of the new students on a more personal level. A novice group usually consists of about 20 novices, and 4 faddrar. The recruitment of faddrar usually takes place in the middle of the semester, and it is a great way of making new friends.

During the Novice Week, there are plenty of activities and events where you could help out by being a “staffare”. Staffing for the Novice Week lets you participate in the week in a smaller scale, and is perfect for anyone who does not have the time to commit to being a fadder or being part of the committee.

The Corporate Relations Coordinators role

The Corporate Relations role in the Novice Committee is about the communication with our sponsors. It involves discussing existing deals with our sponsors, finding new sponsors, and of course – making sure that their participation during the week works well for both parts.

The Marketing Coordinators role

As Marketing Coordinator you will be in charge of creating posters, films to promote activities, and capturing different events on camera. They are also in charge of the exposure of the Novice Committee on social media. This role involves a tight cooperation with The Marketing Group.

The Social Activities Coordinators role

The Novice Week would be nothing without the games and activities during the days. As Social Activities Coordinator you work closely with staffers, other committees and companies to make sure that games and competitions work smoothly.

The Events Coordinator role

The Novice Week ends with a bang. The last night of the Novice Week is when the magic Gala happens. There is nothing more iconic to the student life in Lund than a well planned and executed sitting. As Events Coordinator you will be in charge of the Gala – a three course dinner with an incredible follow-up party.
The Novice Party following a few weeks later to round up the entire Novice Period is when Novices become true LundaEkonomer. All members of LundaEkonomerna are invited to this magical night at the end of the Novice Period.

The Internal Relations Coordinators role

As Internal Relations Coordinator, your job is to handle communication with faddrar, planning internal events throughout the semester and making sure that the administrive parts function well.

"Do you want to be a part of The Novice Week and give our new LUSEM students the best start possible in Lund? Then you should apply for Fadder!"

To be a Fadder

To be a Fadder is a great responsibility but also great fun! You are the first students at LUSEM that the Novices meet and their first face of LundaEkonomerna. You get to be a role model and show them around Lund, how great our student life is and tell them what they need to know before school starts.

As a fadder you will make sure that about 20 new students get a novice week that they will never forget and that they feel like they belong in Lund and in LundaEkonomerna.

The Novice Week Spring 2018

The Novice Week this fall will take place Monday the 8th of Januari to Saturday the 13th of Januari. As a fadder you need to be able to meet up with your three faddercollegues to call your novices on Friday the 5th of Januari and come to Skånis for a short meeting with the Novice Committee on the Sunday the 7th of Januari before the week kicks off.


Everyone who applies to become Fadder will get to meet the Novice Committee at an audition. The auditions will be held Sunday the 5th of November and Monday the 6th of November. You need to prepare a performance (SPEX) or a movie to show us why you should get the chance to become FADDRAR. The movie needs to be finished and prepared to show us at the audition. You will have 5 to 1o minutes to show us this and afterwards we will ask you some interview questions.

A word from our General

Erik Söderqvist has participated in all Novice Weeks possible since he started his studies here at LUSEM. He has been a Novice and a part of the Novice Committee for three semesters.

See available positions


”The Novice Week gave me a great start to my studies here in Lund, the week made me comfortable that I made the right decision moving away to study, and most of all it gave loads of new friends! Being a part of the Novice Committee is the best decision I have made during my time in Lund, it is amazing to give other new students the opportunity to start their studies the best way possible, just like I had.”
I urge everyone to in one way or another get engaged in our student union. There are so many different committees and activities to get involved in, and in return you receive so much positive energy, knowledge, experience and most of all friends for life!”

Who should consider applying for the Novice Committee?
Anyone who feels like they have something they want to give to the new students. Anyone who wants to be part of an amazing experience where you learn not only to be more confident but also what it is like to befriend hundreds of new students each semester. We are recruiting twice a year and then looking for anyone who who feels alright with being inviting and fun when needed, responsible when necessary, and has an open mind to ideas.
