Hvilan SFI Lund


Swedish language for immigrants (SFI) is offered to those who have arrived in Sweden and have a residence permit. The goal is to create opportunities for students to develop basic knowledge of the Swedish language and society.

At Hvilan SFI in Lund, we offer two different study tracks

Study path 2

(includes the SFI courses B, C, and D): For students with a school background less extensive than the equivalent Swedish upper-secondary school. You will study SFI at school every day from 09:00 – 12:15.

Study path 3

(includes the SFI courses C and D): For students who have completed studies corresponding to Swedish upper secondary school or have studied at a university.

There are three study options to choose from Study path 3. All courses include 15 hours of mandatory studies weekly. However, depending on the course, the number of teacher-led hours on-site and distance in the form of homework varies. Our courses are suitable for those who are used to self-studies and want to combine studies with work etc.

Different options for study path 3

Kombo/Hvilan flex is an SFI course where you attend lessons at school at least three times a week. You book your on-site classes from a schedule in our booking system. It is mandatory to book at least 8 hours a week (3 lessons).

The distance course arrangement is where all teaching and conversations with the teacher are online. You will participate in online lessons twice every week, and you book the lessons from a schedule in our booking system. You can choose between morning lessons, 09.00-11.00, and afternoon lessons, 13.00-15.00.

The evening course is for those who want to study SFI in the evening. You participate in scheduled on-site lessons twice a week between 5.30 – 7.30 pm. You will participate on-site either on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays.

  • Have an individualized study plan
