University of Gothenburg

Single Subject Courses

We have a variety of individual/single subject courses in psychology at the undergraduate and graduate level. Many of our students choose to take a degree with psychology as their major, while some choose to study psychology as part of, or a complement to, a degree with another major. Still others, who are already in professional life, study a course with us to develop their skills.

    Courses in Swedish

    If you know Swedish, you can choose from all our courses.

    Courses in English

    We also offer courses in psychology in English that you can take as a free-mover or within the Faculty of Social Sciences' exchange programme.

    Courses in psychology starting in spring or autumn semester

    Spring semester (January-June)

    Autumn semester (August-January)


    The courses are the same for free-movers and exchange students, but the application process differs.

    If you are a free-mover, i.e., not within an exchange programme, or a Swedish student, you apply directly from the list above, or on

    As an exchange student you need to be nominated by your home university and also apply in another way.
