Scandinavian Studies

Information for offer holders on single and joint honours degree programmes involving Scandinavian Studies. Velkommen / Velkomen / Välkommen!

Welcome from Professor Jeremy Robbins, Head of School

Thank you for your interest in the subject area of Scandinavian Studies. Whichever programme you hold an offer for, congratulations on receiving it! I’m delighted that you are interested in studying with us, and we very much hope that you will join our community.

The School of Literatures, Languages and Cultures (LLC) offers one of the widest range of languages of any UK university. Our students and graduates tell us that they value the School’s friendliness, the connections they have made here, and the in-depth guidance of our staff, who are experts in their field and passionate about what they do.

We specialise in teaching students with varying amounts of language experience so, whatever your existing level of Danish, Norwegian or Swedish, you will be in good hands. Additionally, accepting an offer with us means that you have access to our European languages online resources hub for new students before you start.

Ordinarily, we’d be welcoming you to our building in the heart of the University of Edinburgh’s Central Area, just across George Square from the Main Library. As we can’t do that just now, we’ve provided as much information as we can here to help you on your way to choosing the right university for you.

Good luck, and we hope to see you in September.

Our programmes and community

Studying here was the best choice I have ever made. The department is full of many kind people who share my passion for Scandinavian Studies. The course starts at beginners' level, but after a year I already feel fluent in Norwegian [my choice from the three Scandinavian languages on offer], with the help of amazing tutors, fellow students, and the Scandinavian community here at the University.
