Education Vocabulary in Swedish Posted by on Oct 9, 2012 in Vocabulary

Plenty of readers here are working on their Swedish as they study away at university. So what better way than to include yet another vocabulary list? This one covers about about 20 different fields of study and an extra 15 words or so. It’s a long vocabulary list this time. It’s a long vocabulary this time though because several of these words should look very familiar to you. Take advantage of those words, they should be much easier to learn!

I’ve almost assuredly missed your field of study. For that, I’m sorry. But, definitely feel free to include your field of study in the comments below. T.ex. Jag läser __________ på universitetet.

As always, good luck!
