University of Gothenburg

Diagnostic assessment of prior learning

Would you like to take an introductory course in English at the University of Gothenburg but are ineligible because you lack the required coursework from Swedish upper secondary school (English 6)? 

Then you can take a test at the Department of Languages and Literatures to determine whether you can be deemed eligible based on prior learning, that is, whether you have knowledge and skills corresponding to the required upper secondary course.

Note! In order to take the test, you must have applied for an introductory course at the University of Gothenburg. The result is only valid when applying for courses at our department.

If you have questions, please contact our study counsellors for more information.
