Naturvetenskapsprogrammet Natural Science

Natural Science

The Natural Science Programme is intended for students who wish to study natural sciences; it is particularly suited for students interested in Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. The International Natural Science Programme follows the syllabus for the Swedish Naturvetenskapsprogrammet (NA) using English as the language of instruction and communication.

What you will study

You learn about solving mathematical problems, energy, electricity, the human body, the ecosystem and genetic technology among other topics. Studying natural science includes field studies, laboratory work, practical training and theoretical studies as well as international contacts and exchanges.
Also networking with universities, companies, enterprises and hospitals will be a vital part of activities on the programme. There will be a number of study visits that will take place through out the three year programme. We give you the opportunity to prepare for Cambridge Advanced English Exam (CAE), a language proficiency test.

After graduation

The programme lays the foundations for further studies in natural sciences, medicine, engineering, mathematics, technology and social sciences in higher education. Passing Cambridge Advanced English Exam shows that you are a high achiever and it is a badge of excellence.

English on the International College

The three courses, English 5, 6 and 7 follow the national curriculum. For all students at the International College all three courses are mandatory.
