Dear student,

Welcome to Folkuniversitetet and your Swedish course! We are happy that you have chosen to study with us and we hope that you will have a lovely experience here in Göteborg.

Course level and course certificate
It is important that you are placed in the correct language level. If you are uncertain of your language level you can turn to the Swedish language administration for guidance.

If your teacher notices that your language abilities are either too high or too low for the course you are studying, the teacher will recommend you to change to another group/level.

If you have attended at least 75% of the course you can ask the administration for a course certificate, after your course is finished. Note that this course certificate is not an official grade/diploma that guarantees your level - if you wish to validate your language skills, you have to take an examination such as Swedex or take our C1-test or take an exam at Vuxenutbildningen i Göteborg.

Course evaluation
Your opinion is valuable for us. After the course is finished, you will receive a course evaluation by email and we would be very grateful if you could take a few minutes to give us your thoughts about the course. If you are not happy with something during the course, please talk to your teacher directly or contact us in the administration.
