The first semester of English studies includes a broad introduction to the English language from multiple perspectives. The course includes teaching in culture, literature and language variation in the English-speaking world, and parallel practice in language proficiency.

Teaching in linguistics, literature and language proficiency is delivered in the form of lectures and exercises in smaller groups, along with oral and written presentations. The students practise generic competencies such as independent work, critical thinking, oral and written communication skills, time management and analytical skills.


Roughly 15 minutes with a bike from the city centre, you will find Linnaeus University’s campus. It is like a small society with the university, student accommodation, and student life. Here you become part of a creative knowledge environment.

What will you come across on an excursion in Växjö – the city of contrasts? You will find good restaurants, a celebrated hockey team, and cozy cafés where you can enjoy a latte with lingonberry flavour. In Växjö, beautiful nature is always just around the corner; the city is surrounded by lakes and forests. Students like the combination of the city centre and the active student life on campus. Your dream of the future starts here!
