Description of Course Package

The course package comprises four courses and will begin in the spring semester 2018 in February.

The four courses in the package are as follows:

Together, these provide a basis for you to develop the four core language skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing. You will learn how to integrate into a foreign university classroom that brings together students and teachers with a variety of cultural backgrounds, thus interculturalism is a key component of the courses.

You will gain confidence through group work and individual work that serve to help you improve your English language skills in a variety of contexts. The friendly and personable environment that characterizes the courses is key to the success of the student group, as demonstrated by former students.

Application Information

At present, this course package is open to international fee-paying students only, both undergraduate and graduate students. You can submit an online application here.

We encourage ALL international students to apply to these earlier rounds as the application deadlines and decisions come several months before the semester starts. This allows you to apply for and receive your resident permit (if needed), arrange for housing and have plenty of time to plan for your time in Sweden. In addition, you can find out much earlier whether you have been offered a place in a course or programme in Sweden, thereby making it easier for you to prepare and plan for your studies. universityadmissions.se.

All of us in the EAP Department at Dalarna University look forward to wishing you a warm welcome.
