Foreign healthcare professionals who intend to work in Sweden need to obtain a “License to Practice” from the Swedish authorities. One of the requirements is to have advanced level of knowledge in the Swedish language. The Swedish Language and Culture program leads up to the advanced fluency level (C1), which is required, for instance, by Socialstyrelsen (The National Board of Health and Welfare). It is also needed for academic and working life in Sweden in general
