The Swedish package
Master's studies at KTH are held in English, but for international master's students who want to learn Swedish, we also offer a package of three courses:
Introduction to Sweden: language and culture
Introductory course: Swedish language and culture the first semester at KTH, period 1-2.
Swedish - advanced beginners
Swedish for advanced beginners the second semester at KTH, period 3-4.

Certificate of global competence
In their future roles, KTH students need to communicate and work in environments characterised by cultural and social diversity. Global competence is increasingly demanded in professional life and is a prerequisite for working successfully in our global society. In order to satisfy this need, KTH offers a Certificate of Global Competence, which consists of three parts; two courses and your stay in Sweden.
