Courses in English

In most of the courses given by NADA the language of tuition is Swedish. Experience has shown that it is a clear disadvantage for the majority of Swedish students if a Swedish teacher lectures in English. The quality of the tuition and of the dialog between students and teacher is lowered. In some courses we have foreign teachers who lecture in English. For the courses within the international master programs all tuition and all written material is in English.

Exchange students who come to another country to study are supposed to learn the language and the culture of that country as part of their experience.

In practically all of our elective courses we use text books written in English. Course material in the form of handouts, lab instructions etc. may be in English or Swedish. Some teachers use slides in English when they lecture. If you do not understand Swedish, please contact the teacher of each course that you plan to take well ahead of course start. This will make any adjustments necessary easier. Even if the lab assignments are in Swedish, the labs can normally be carried out and examined in English. Most teachers will be willing to accept reports, examinations etc. done by exchange students in English. But discuss such matters with the teacher in advance. In many courses lab work is done in pairs. It is then usually a good idea for an exchange student to try to find a Swedish student to work with.

If you plan to make a master's project please see our instructions
