Upper secondary school

In Sweden, all children and teenagers who have graduated lower secondary school have a right to an upper secondary school education that should provide a stable basis for work, higher education and active participation in public life.

Upper secondary school (gymnasieskolan) offers different types of programmes:

  • Eighteen national programmes each lasting three years. These consist of upper secondary foundation subjects, subjects common to a programme, orientations, programme specialisations and a diploma project.
  • Five introductory programmes for pupils who are not eligible for a national programme.
  • Education that deviates from the national programme structures; special variants, programmes based on national recruitment, and nationally approved sports programmes (NIU).
