Please note that all TOEFL tests must be sent directly from Educational Testing Service (ETS). Students can use TOEFL institution code 3477. 

Swedish Language Requirements

All Bachelor’s programmes at SLU are conducted in Swedish.  Students who wish to take programmes or courses in Swedish must be competent in the Swedish language.  Specifically, they must have the equivalent qualification of Swedish studies at upper secondary school in Sweden, known as Swedish Course B. 

There are several ways that students can provide proof of their Swedish language proficiency. 

• Pass a test in Swedish for University and Colleges (TISUS).  For more information, visit TISUS.

• Have completed secondary school in Danish, Norwegian or Icelandic, and provide a certified copy of study grades.

• Have completed secondary school in Finnish, and provide a certified copy of study grades.  However, if students have completed secondary school in Finnish but have not taken the Matriculation Examination in Swedish, they must have taken Swedish as a subject for at least three years (or five courses), to have an equivalent qualification to Swedish Course B.
