Preparing for the test

Preparing for Tisus

Tisus is a proficiency test, not a knowledge test. This means that there are no demands to have read certain literature or passed certain courses. On the other hand, your language proficiency in Swedish must be at a level that allows you to take academic courses in Swedish.

Test examples

The sample test material enables you to become acquainted with the test. Only sample test material is available to candidates. All other test material is classified.

To bring with to the test

To take the test you must be able to present a valid picture ID, and you are allowed to bring some support materials.

Courses in Swedish as a foreign language

Swedish as a foreign language is a qualifying course in Swedish. It is intended for those who have an upper secondary diploma from overseas but lack competence in Swedish. We offer courses on two levels that will prepare you for academic studies at Swedish Universities.
