Welcome to the Swedish School of Library and Information Science (SSLIS) at the University of Borås.
Each year, more than 300 students are admitted to SSLIS and about 130 Master’s theses are produced. Both undergraduate and postgraduate education and research in Library and Information Science are important, as well as the link between the different levels.
Bachelor's Degree Programmes
The undergraduate education, organised in different programmes, are aimed at future librarians and information specialists: the bachelors programmes in Librarianship and the Web Editor Programme respectively. We also have a variety of campus and distance master's programmes.
SSLIS does currently not, however, admit non-Swedish speaking international students to undergraduate/bachelor degree programmes unless they have passed a mandatory language exam given by the state authorities. This applies to all undergraduate/bachelor level students at the University except for those arriving on exchange programmes from one of our partner universities.
Master's Degree Programme in English
A completely English speaking master's programme, Digital Library and Information Services, is offered, to which you are welcome to apply. Besides this English programme, SLISS offers several master's programmes with different focuses. These are in Swedish.
Applicants can apply directly to the study programme at:
