English language requirements

Last changed: 10 April 2024

Applicants for doctoral studies at SLU must meet certain English language requirements. For students from Swedish upper secondary schools, this is English B/English 6. Alternatively, applicants must hold an internationally recognised English language qualification (TOEFL, IELTS, and Cambridge ESOL). More information is available on www.universityadmissions.se.

All TOEFL test results must be sent to SLU directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS). Use the SLU institution code 1185.

There are certain exemptions from the above requirements. These can be found via www.universityadmissions.se.
