Teacher programmes

These programmes are given in Swedish. Therefore you can only apply for them if you studied upper secondary school in Sweden, Denmark (including the Faeroe Islands), Iceland or Norway. If you didn’t, you have to show that you have sufficient proficiency in the Swedish language by passing a language test. Read more about that at the bottom of this page.

IBG is participating in the education of the two types of teachers: "grundlärare" and "ämneslärare". "Ämneslärare" will be educated in biology and the subject called "naturvetenskap" which is taught in upper secondary school.
