KTH's education for professional engineers
See KTH's wide offer of courses for professionals, a perfect way to develop your career.
KTH's goal is for lifelong learning to be an integral part of KTH's education and to comprise about 20 percent of the total volume of education. In recent years, the government has implemented special initiatives and given assignments aimed at increasing lifelong learning at Sweden's universities and higher education institutions.
Direct government funded continuing professional development (freestanding courses)
Direct government funded continuing professional development is primarily aimed at professionals who wish to continue their education or develop their skills and careers. KTH's offer is currently in the form of freestanding courses.
Checklist: Course information for freestanding courses
It is important that information about freestanding courses is filled in in a clear way so that as many as possible can find and want to apply to KTH's courses. Here you will find how to fill in or update course information for a freestanding course, step by step.
Contract education is paid education commissioned by employers for their employees, to develop employees' skills. KTH offers both tailored and open contract education in different subjects.
Processes within lifelong learning
Processes within direct government funded continuing professional development and contract education are currently not available in English, but it is an ongoing work. Once processes are available they will be published on this page.

The percentage of those completing the course was also significantly higher at KTH than the national average. Read about the development in an interview with Anders Johansson, coordinator for LL.
