Before you apply

You choose a programme with the specialisation you are looking for at the desired gymnasium you want to study at. The Studie- och yrkesvägledare (SYV) at your school can help you in preparation for this.

Find out:

  • what programme and courses suit you
  • which schools have the programmes your are looking for
  • what you need in order to get into your desired school

Talk to friends, former classmates and visit as many Open Houses as you can before making a final decision. Everyone has different experiences and knowledge, adults, teachers, current students of the school you are interested in - it is important to get as much perspective as possible. Your school SYV will also help you to get the answers you need in order to make a decision. 

You can also use Skolverkets website and to find and compare schools:
