level of study
At undergraduate level, we offer a number of entry-level courses that also offer pathways onto a full BA, BSc or LLB undergraduate degree, including:
- short courses
- certificates of higher education
- foundation degrees
- undergraduate degrees with a foundation year.
The next level is master’s, also knows as second cycle in the European Region. The term ‘graduate level’ can also be used. Universities in Sweden offer a large range of international master’s programmes where the language of instruction is English. These programmes are open to both Swedish and international students who have earned a bachelor’s degree (equivalent to a Swedish kandidatexamen). There are English language requirements at this level as well.
Bachelor’s level is also known as first cycle in the European Region. You may also be familiar with the term ‘undergraduate’. In Sweden, there is a wide range of international courses available at this level, but a limited number of study programmes. These courses and programmes are taught in English. Very basically, a student must have completed upper secondary studies in order to be qualified for study at this level. There are also English language requirements.
