Prepare for University


An approved result on TISUS gives access to studies at Swedish universities. However, years of preparation are needed to reach the required language level. Our immensely popular courses in Swedish are aimed at students who attend school outside Sweden and to teenagers and adults who have a high school diploma from a country other than Sweden. We have courses at all levels.

Advanced Courses for Qualifying Tests – SKYPE

Our advanced courses were created by experienced certified high school teachers with the goal of perfecting your Swedish so that you can pass TISUS and study at universities in Sweden. The courses are also a good preparation for Validation Test C1, which adds linguistic qualifications to Swedish professional credentials.

The advanced courses are suitable for teens from about 15 years old up to adults. If desired, you can choose a completely individualized course with one-on-one teaching. If you are interested in taking an intensive course, perhaps in the summer, we will do everything we can to arrange that too.
