Language requirements for the recruitment of doctors with qualification from within the EU/EEA
If you have qualified as a doctor abroad and have no Swedish upper secondary school qualification, you will need a certificate of approved language skills in Swedish corresponding to the general eligibility requirements for admission to medical college in Sweden, i.e. a pass in Swedish B or Swedish as Second Language course B or the TISUS test or the equivalent of C1 on the European scale. An individual assessment is made of doctors qualified in the Nordic countries.
