Study Abroad Swedish language programmes

The Study Abroad Swedish Language programme is designed for those who are interested in developing a profound knowledge of the Swedish language and who are seeking a unique Scandinavian "study abroad" experience by coming to live and study at Lund University for one or two semesters. The language studies are intense and are available as a course package for one semester (covering beginner levels 1-4), or as a two-semester course package covering levels 1-8 (beginner to advanced). To be eligible to apply applicants must have completed their upper secondary school studies and have English language proficiency to the level of "English 6/English course B" (IELTS 6.5 with no section less than 5.5, or TOEFL 90).
