Course description

At General Course you can combine theory and practice in one of our three profiles: handicraft, music & film or cross-country skiing & running. Two days a week you practice your profile and the remaining time you study theoretical subjects. You can also choose not to have a profile, but only study theoretical subjects. The course qualifies you for further studies. After folk college studies you apply to university in a specific quota.

General subjects
At General Course you can study Swedish, English, civics, sciences, religion, history, computer, and mathematics. The level of each subject is based on your prior knowledge. You can study all or just a few subjects.


We work widely and are inspired by different musical styles. Together we create an enjoyable existence where we create room for musical experiments. Ensemble forms a major part of the course. Repertoire, arrangements, performance, music theory and to try out different instruments are also included. We plan and implement various projects, such as music cafes and concerts.


Film projects are mainly linked to the music we play. From concept, script and planning to implementation and post-processing. Through the film, we create stories based on various themes and messages. The focus is on the creative process and not on the technology. We film with a handy camera and editing in Adobe Premiere.
