Swedish for Immigrants

Swedish for Immigrants, SFI, is a basic course in the Swedish language and Swedish society for people whose native language is not Swedish. To study SFI you must be over 16 years of age, be registered for population purposes in the Municipality of Örebro and have a full personal identity number.

Courses vary in orientation, language level, and rate of study. The courses are free, but you are not eligible for student financial aid for SFI. A guidance counselor will work with you to determine which course fits your needs best. Course selection will be based partly on the purpose of your studies and your previous experience and educational background.
