Who is this programme designed for?
This Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science - Pre-Bachelor's Preparation Programme from ONCAMPUS Lund is designed to prepare international students for undergraduate study in Sweden. The PBPP will allow you to improve your English while learning the study skills you will need during your Bachelor's degree studies.
How long will I study for?
This programme lasts one academic year (nine months). The year is divided into three terms of seven to eight teaching weeks and one examination week. On average, you will undertake 21 (and up to 25) hours of classroom-based study per week.
English Language forms up to six hours of your timetable, is compulsory for students who are below the required level for progression, and will be integrated into the teaching of academic subjects as well as being taught separately if you need additional support. Students who are at or above the required English level for progression are likely to follow a reduced timetable.
Students will be expected to timetable self-study hours in addition to the classroom-based hours.
What will I study?
Students will focus on their academic subjects from September of the year they join to January of the following year (such as Maths, Physics) and then the Undergraduate skills modules from January to June.
Students applying for university in Sweden must have submitted their university application by January of the year of university entry, and as such, the PBPP is heavily weighted at the start of the year with academic subjects to ensure students have the best possible chance of meeting the entry criteria by the time they need to apply to university.
