Each course consists of 15 sessions of 1.5 hours. The courses are held via Zoom or Google Meet, so you can participate regardless of where you work, or from home.

A new beginners-course will start during spring 2021. The registration will open soon.

To be able to register, you need to be an SLU employee and have an AD account. You must be logged in with your own AD account when you register, it cannot be done by someone else on your behalf.

When you register, you commit to attending all course sessions. If you attend all sessions, you will receive a course certificate after the course.

All registrations must be made through the registration link, you cannot register by e-mail. 


CEFR test to determine your level

Before registration, you must take the CEFR test and state your level in your registration. 
If you have taken the test before, you should do it again to have an up-to-date result. 

The CEFR test is available here: https://www.upgrades.se/en/testa-din-sprakniva-cefr-testet/. 

Make sure you read the instructions before you start the test. 

Please complete the CEFR test and course registration before the registration deadline.



Once registration has closed, 2 weeks before the start of the course, we will review all registrations.

You will then receive an email confirming your registration. This is sent to the email address you provided when you registered. The email will inform you whether you have a place on the course, if you are on the waiting list or if we cannot offer you a place this time.

Registrations sent by email after the registration deadline will be placed on the waiting list and invited to register again at a later date.
