October 15, 2020

University student

The English website for applying to programs and courses as an international student is www.universityadmissions.se, however don’t forget to check out the national admissions round too at www.antagning.se. The last day for application in the national admissions round and the second international round is today, October 15, but there are usually options with late applications after that date as well.
The tricky thing is that the information is in Swedish, but here is a link where we have filtered the search field so it only shows you courses and programs offered in English.

 

How can I study in English in Sweden?

The easiest way to find courses and programs at Swedish universities is to have a look here: www.universityadmissions.se . Most academic opportunities in English will be at Master’s level or Phd level, but there are some Bachelor level classes and programs to be found as well.

There is also something in Sweden called Yrkeshögskolanwhich is higher vocational education. This is also higher level studies but instead of an academic focus, these programs combine theoretical and practical studies and has a close connection to employers and the industry. In fact, all educational programs that Yrkeshögskolan offers are fields of work with an explicit demand for competence. That also means that close to everyone graduating from Yrkeshögskolan will find a job within their field as soon as they finish their program.

Most programs are given in Swedish but a few programs are offered in English.

If you need to reach a higher level of English to be able to study in English, you can study English for free within your municipality (komvux), the same place you sign up for SFI studies.
