Learn a language at KTH
Language and Communication offers courses and language training for KTH students and employees as well as working professionals. We also offer language cafés and Tandem partners in connection with KTH's language partner programme.
How it works
Programme student at KTH
- Take a placement test in order to choose the right level.
- Register for the credit-giving courses during the registration periods via antagning.se. If you have problems or are late with your registration, your study advisor can help you. Read more about registration for programme students
Language Cafes and Tandem Partner are activities where you can develop your skills in conversation with other students.
International student at KTH
Are you a fee-paying international student or scholarship holder at master's level or a student through Erasmus Mundus, EIT, or SAP? If you are studying at KTH for the first time during the autumn semester, you are welcome to study four free, non-credit-bearing courses.
Master's studies at KTH are in English. International master's students who want to learn Swedish can take a package consisting of three courses.
We also have a virtual exchange for students from our partner universities in Unite! These courses can be taken remotely. For more information, contact your Unite coordinator at your home university. All courses within Unite!
Many of the independent credit-giving courses are open to everyone who lives in Sweden. Find a standalone course (Swe)
We also tailor commissioned training for companies. Perhaps your entire department needs to improve its engineering English or learn German in order to effectively communicate with an important partner. We can help you with this.
KTH PhD Student
Talk to your supervisor or immediate manager if you want to take a language course. The Swedish courses for employees fall under commissioned training, which means that the course fee is paid by the department you are employed at.
It is also possible for staff to apply for regular, credit-bearing student courses in language and communication through the employer paying for a so-called assignment seat.
If you hold a management position at KTH, feel free to contact us for customised teaching that suits your group. Please e-mail email@example.com to explore possibilities.
KTH's language courses are open to employees, but programme students have priority. Language Cafes and Tandem Partner are activities where you can develop your skills in conversation with others.
