Extra Chance to Try Boarding - 23-25 March, 2017 book before 15 March

Natural Science Programme


What courses will I study ?

Taught in Swedish OR English

This is one of the school’s largest programmes. It opens the door to all Swedish universities and colleges, as well as many international courses.

After graduating from SSHL, you’ll have great knowledge, especially in science, maths and technology, but you will also have studied modern languages and the humanities.

Shortage of Scientists

Those who choose the Physical Science Programme and then study further have careers, for example, in IT or as a doctor, architect or civil engineer. Many study economics or law, which provides additional career paths to follow.

The demand for scientists will be great for many years to come. Future prospects are good, but consider that this programme requires a serious willingness to learn and a determined effort by you.

The Natural World and Society

The programme develops your knowledge of nature and society from a scientific perspective.

This means, among other things, that you learn a lot about interconnections in nature, and science’s role in sustainable development.

You will also practice your ability to think critically, to reason logically, solve problems and make systematic observations.

Not Just Theory

The Physical Science Programme, with most time spent on maths, can be perceived as very theoretical. But of equal importance are the physical experiments, the chemistry labs and the studies taking place in nature. For many, it is a festive occasion when theory is tested in practice.

Modern Technology, Committed Teachers

SSHL utilises modern technology, both in laboratories and teaching. Students have good access to computers, for example, to search for facts and evaluate various sources. SSHL also collaborations with KTH, which means some of our laboratory work is conducted in Vetenskapens Hus. Classes are given only by experienced and dedicated teachers. Lessons and labs are held in one of the school’s most modern buildings, with bright and study-friendly rooms.
