Programmes and Courses

People with thorough knowledge in 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 offers five study programmes, four at undergraduate level and one at master's level: 

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.

Single courses at the master's level may be given in Swedish or English.

Exchange students with limited 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.
