Apply to our MSc programme

We are now accepting applications for the MSc programme in Human Factors & Systems Safety starting in January 2023.

The entire procedure for application is outlined at our application-page.

The course begins in January, 16-20, with a learning laboratory in Lund, Sweden, January. The learning laboratory is mandatory for first-year master students. Even if you are not a MSc student you are welcome to participate in the learning laboratory (a good idea if you are interesting in exploring whether the full MSc programme might be interesting for you). 

The application deadline is October 15, 2022.

Our aim

Our aim is to get people from across safety-critical industries like healthcare, aviation, shipping, process control, military, railways and nuclear power together to critically reflect on and learn about human factors and system safety. Through a series of new Learning Laboratories and a full MSc programme, you too can participate in the exciting scientific renaissance and rapid development of complexity and systems thinking that will help you and your organization learn and grow.

If you would like to get in touch with any of our former or current master students, prior to deciding whether or not to submit an application, some of them are listed with their contact details following this link.
