SUSA: A short introduction

Lund University offers a short introduction to the Swedish language. The course is called SUSA and it is designed to give exchange students a smooth integration into the Swedish society. A successful exam will result in 3 credits. Instruction is offered at two levels; beginning/no previous knowledge of Swedish (SUSA11) and intermediate (SUSA12). The SUSA courses always start on arrival in Sweden, before the semester starts.

An application for SUSA can be added to your application for exchange studies in Sweden. Mostly it is also possible to register for SUSA once in Sweden, on Arrival Day.

Please note: If you have previous knowledge of Swedish corresponding to level B1 on the CEFR-scale, please let us know, and we will place you into the SUSA12 group.

Read more about our SUSA-courses and watch our podcasts here (updates for autumn will soon be available):

If you are at a more advanced level there is a possibility to apply for our regular Swedish courses at different levels (see information about SVEE courses via link on the right). This is done via your LU or LTH coordinator.
