Information about supplementary education for psychologists with a foreign license

There are three supplementary education alternatives for psychologists with a foreign education and which are located in Uppsala, Lund and Umeå.

Read more about the alternatives here:

Uppsala

Lund 

Umeå

When the training is completed, you will receive a certificate to be able to apply to do PTP at National board of health. And after approved PTP, you can apply for identification with National board of health and welfare.


The second way is to apply directly for identification with National board of health and welfare.

This can be done if you believe that there is a possibility that National board of health and welfare will assess that your education is sufficiently reminiscent of Swedish. Unfortunately, you can not get much advance notice about it. 

National board of health and welfare does not want to give advance notice, for example how likely they are to assess that a certain university's psychologist education in a certain country could be approved by them. However, two things can be assumed: the education that the person in question has completed must be at master's level, and there must have been practical elements, applied psychology, in the education. But you can not say more than that before, but you have to try. If it is rejected, you can try to apply for supplementary education.
