The Swedish system of higher education is divided into three cycles: first cycle (3 years, including Bachelor's Degree), second cycle (2 years, including Master's Degree) and third cycle (4 years, including Licentiate Degree and Doctoral Degree).
The School provides these three cycles in business administration, economics, economic history, economic geography, human geography, law and statistics.
To be eligible for the courses and programmes taught in Swedish, you have to have studied "Swedish B" in the Swedish upper secondary school. A one-year beginner's course in Swedish is offered by the Faculty of Arts at the University of Gothenburg.
