Programmes and Courses

People with a thorough knowledge of the areas of sport and health are needed in schools, in sports, and in the whole of society. It is the task of the the Swedish School of Sport and Health Sciences, GIH, to provide higher education for those who are going to fulfil those needs.

GIH provides five programmes:

In addition to the programmes a selection of single courses are offered every year.


The language of instruction in all our undergraduate programmes is Swedish. To be able to follow the education, students need advanced Swedish language skills.

The single courses at the Master levels may be given in Swedish or English.

Exchange students without knowlegde in the Swedish language can be offered to follow the more practical courses in Swedish with English support. This is subject to agreement and availability.


Incoming students will, according to a decision made by the Vice-Chancellor, be graded on the ECTS A-F scale (domestic students are graded on a two or three grade scale).
