Prepare for university


Many Swedes with children growing up outside Sweden are keen to offer them a multilingual life. Therefore, they speak Swedish at home. As the children grow older, many families wish that their children can do parts of, or a full university education in Sweden. To be admitted to a Swedish university with a non-Swedish highschool diploma, you have to pass a Swedish language test called Tisus. But to reach the linguistic level required for this, an effective study method at the right academic level is needed.  Global Svenska offers all this.

Course Packages

Our standard  packages are built on genre-based teaching and the guidelines of the Swedish National Agency for Education for the syllabus of Additional Swedish Teaching for Swedish Students Abroad, and the levels of the internationally accredited Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, CEFR. Reading comprehension, word knowledge and writing skills are in focus, often through texts and exercises about Swedish geography, society and culture.

Each course package is available at different levels and corresponds to around 50-60 hours of work. The courses come in two basic versions; the smaller package where most of the work is done without teacher support and the standard package offering 14 teaching hours* with a certified teacher of Swedish in a virtual classroom. At what level your teenager should study will be determined by an initial diagnostic test. This test is carried out shortly after the student’s application.

Those who choose the standard package get scheduled information and a follow-up within each topic from their contact teacher. If you choose the smaller package, your child of course receives less tutoring and feedback, but instead you are given the advantage of disposing your time more freely.

Levels Available

Our course packages are adapted throughout the entire high school, but we consistently use the European CEFR framework in our work with assessment and evaluation. Levels A1 and A2 describe the language of a person with a limited everyday language. B1 and B2 represent an intermediate level where you are capable of talking and reading about most things around you without greater effort. The C1 and C2 levels are advanced and academic. A student having an approved grade in Swedish at a theoretical upper secondary school in Sweden is normally at a C1 or C2 level. To be able to study at a Swedish university, the minimum requirement is a certificate of a C1 level. Learn more about CEFR
