The Swedish "Higher Education Points" are exactly equivalent to ECTS credits - that is, you take 30 ECTS credits per semester (2 Uppsala credits = 1 US credit). A full academic year corresponds to 60 credits. Each week of full-time study is worth 1.5 credits.

All exchange students have the chance to study a course in basic Swedish. A course worth 7.5 ECTS runs every semester. This course is part time and designed to be taken parallel with your regular studies. Application takes place on arrival. For those of you arriving in the autumn there is the possibility of taking a one month intensive Swedish language course.
