Courses in Swedish and English for international students

The Department of Language Studies offers a range of courses in Swedish catering for international students at Umeå University, from those who simply wish to acquire a basic level of Swedish during their stay in Umeå to those who need to meet the entry requirements for courses and programmes taught in Swedish. We also give a course in English for international students who wish to improve their spoken and written English.

The courses are open to all international students i.e. both students under formal agreements and free movers.

Since applications to these courses are not handled by our department, students under formal exchange agreements (Erasmus etc.) who have questions about entry requirements, the application process etc. should get in touch with the International Office at Umeå University, while free-movers should direct such questions to Infocenter.

For questions regarding course content, timetables, admission tests etc., please e-mail our international liaison officer.
