SFI - Swedish for Immigrants
Immigrants who lack basic knowledge of the Swedish language have the right to study Swedish for Immigrants - SFI.
The students study SFI 15 hours a week. The students develop basic language skills and learn about how Swedish society is organized and its most fundamental values. The goal is to give the students enough knowledge of Swedish to communicate effectively in everyday situations, in their social lives and at work. These courses are available both during the day and in the evening.
To apply to study SFI for the first time, please contact the Immigration Service, Föreningsgatan 7 B, 3rd floor:
