How do I pay for my course?

You pay for the course directly when you register via Billetto, in this way you also secure your spot in the course. You can pay with Swish, credit card or via Klarna. You must pay the registration fee for the courses immediately, but you can add food and accommodation later.

Can I change courses?

Depending on availability, you can change courses up until the application deadline. 

To do this, please email sara@nordisktljus.se and write which course you signed up for and which one(s) you would like to take instead.

How old do I have to be?

You must be at least 18 years old and have graduated (but not passed) high school to take the course.

It is first come, first served and once you have paid the registration fee via Billetto, you lock your spot in the course. When the courses are full, you can always sign up on the waiting list and hope for a reserve place. Applications for the course period close 1/5.

Can I unsubscribe?

- Cancellations are made by email to our course coordinator Sara at sara@nordisktljus.se

- The course fee is not refundable*, but food and accommodation are until one day before the start of the course

* Our courses are mainly financed by a grant from the National Education Council, which is governed by the number of participants and days - that's why we can have such low fees and offer discounts to those who need it. But if you don't show up, we don't get a grant. The cancellation fee is a way for us to continue to keep prices low.

Can I register for a course that is full?

You can put yourself on the waiting list by emailing info@nordisktljus.se to get on the reserve list.


I want to take several courses, is that okay?

Make your own course package! Just make sure that the courses do not clash, check the dates of the courses carefully. They can start and end on the same day, but not exactly at the same time.

What is required for me to be able to apply for CSN?

To get CSN, studies of at least 15 course days under Nordiskt Ljus are required. You can combine several courses to get the right number of days. Contact sara@nordisktljus.se if you have questions about applying for CSN.

I want to add courses to my course package - how do I do it?

If you change your mind and want to exchange courses in your registration for a course package, we would like you to email us at sara@nordisktljus.se and we will try to solve it as best as we can and subject to space on the courses. First come first served!


How will I live?

The accommodation is in a house with 7-8 people, with its own single room with a single bed, desk and sink in the room. Shower & toilet are shared with the house. There is also a smaller living room and kitchenette in all houses. There are a few double rooms that can be booked subject to availability, but then you must contact us.

SEK 550/350 per day. If you book more than 10 nights, you get a 15% discount. SEK 6,000 for the whole month.

I don't want to live at the school, what about food?

You can buy lunch or dinner at the school. We will send out an interest form to all course participants in time before the courses start, so that you can report that you want to eat at the school. In this way, the kitchen can find out how much food they have to cook during the weeks, or if there is any special diet they need to take into account.

Is the area accessible?

The houses in the area are on ground level and there is a lift in the main building. 

ATTENTION! The hill up from the bus is very steep. If you have specific accessibility needs, please contact us in advance at info@nordisktljus.se and we will try to meet your needs as best we can.

We encourage living & eating at the school, both for the community and because the nearest shop is some distance away!
