Tora Vega SFI Lund (previously Hvilan SFI)


Swedish Language for Immigrants (SFI) is a qualified language education 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.

All our SFI students will

  • Have an individualized study plan
  • Placement in a group with students at a similar level
  • Have a responsible teacher/mentor for your class and group
  • Work with digital tools and methods
  • Feedback and support in your studies from your teacher, online and on-site
  • Regular and structured progress meetings and guidance
  • Access to student and career counsellors

At Tora Vega 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.

You have three study options to choose from within Study Path 3. All courses include 15 hours of mandatory studies weekly. However, depending on the course, the number of teacher-led hours and homework varies.

Our courses suit those who are used to self-studies and want to combine studies with work etc.

Access to a computer and Internet are required to participate in these courses.

Different options for study path 3

Kombo/Flex is an SFI daytime course where you attend school lessons at least three times a week. You schedule your on-site lessons using a class timetable, and it is necessary to book a minimum of 8 hours per week (equivalent to 3 lessons). You will have two on-site classes between 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM and one class between 1:00 PM – 3:00 PM per week. In total, you will spend 8 hours in on-site classes and have 7 hours of teacher-assigned homework per week.

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. This course involves 4 hours of online lessons and 11 hours of teacher-assigned homework per week.

The evening course is for those who want to study SFI in the evening. You participate in scheduled on-site classes twice a week between 5.30 – and 7.30 p.m. You will participate on-site either on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays, depending on your assigned group. The evening course involves 4 hours of on-site classes and 11 hours of teacher-assigned homework per week.
