How to apply


A degree in the subject English

At Stockholm University students can get a Bachelor of Arts degree in English by combining individual, freestanding courses - that is courses with studies for one term only - and in that way 'build their own degree'. You can find more information on that and on which courses need to be included for a degree with English as a major under 'courses and programmes'.

There is no Bachelor's programme in English studies for international students, as programmes that include our courses also require Swedish. International students should also note that on undergradute level our individual, freestanding courses are only open for application in the second admission round. The second round can be an option for students from EU/EEA countries, who do not need a residence permit, but not if you do require a residence permit for studies in Sweden. See more information for international students under 'courses and programmes'.

Our courses and programmes

For a Master of Arts degree in English you can apply for one of our two-year Master's programmes. We offer programmes specialising in English-language Literature and in English Linguistics / Applied English Linguistics. You can find more information and links to each of the programmes here:
