Bachelor’s programmes in English
Nearly 100 international bachelor’s programmes are taught in English in Sweden. A Swedish bachelor’s degree involves in-depth study in your focus area as well as studies in complementary subjects. Studies combine theory and practice, and you’ll be expected to take lots of responsibility right from the beginning of your studies.
Bachelor’s programmes typically require three years of full-time study, for a total of 180 ECTS credits.
Usually, you apply for admission to a full degree programme. After being admitted, you’ll receive information on the courses that make up the programme. Usually, there will be a series of compulsory core courses complemented by elective courses in a closely related field. In most cases, you’ll complete your degree by writing a bachelor’s thesis in the sixth semester.
To be eligible for entry to a bachelor’s programme, you must have successfully completed upper secondary school. Other general and programme-specific entry requirements will also apply.
