It’s great that you are interested in our courses!

Upper secondary adult education is for those who want an upper secondary certification. It is for those who wish to study entire course packages or individual courses, to raise or complement their grades to be able to apply for vocational study, university and college.

Study full-time or part-time, during the day or in the evening. Take one course at a time or several subjects at once. The format is suited for adults that can take independent responsibility for their own studying.

We have schools in several locations in Sweden

In Linköping, Stockholm, Södertälje, Hagfors and Ystad. Each school is only a few minutes’ walk from the nearest stop for train, bus, underground or commuter train.
