Good to know

  • The courses are only available for employees at Uppsala University.
  • If you have prior knowledge of Swedish, but haven't taken a Swedish for Academics course before at UU, we recommend you to take the diagnostic test. This way, you can get placed in one of the higher levels directly.
  • If you have taken a course (Swedish for Academics or Basic Swedish) at the Department of Scandinavian Languages before, you don't need to write the diagnostic test to apply for the next level.
  • If you participate in a Swedish for Academics course this semester, you should apply directly and do not need to wait for the exam results to apply to the next semester.
  • If you are a beginner in Swedish, you do not need to write the diagnostic test. Apply to Swedish for Academics 1.
  • The selection is done on a first come, first served basis. You have priority if you applied for the last semester's course without receiving a place.
