Full-time studies to learn Swedish

Unfortunately, the University of Gothenburg doesn’t offer full-time studies to learn Swedish. There are, however, other great options available. For example, the Swedish Institute offers free online courses and we do offer Swedish language courses for admitted students in some extent. Find out more of what the university has to offer at the university's page Study Swedish and in the student portal page, Swedish language courses.
