Credits and grading system

In Sweden academic credits are called credits (“högskolepoäng” or ”hp”). One semester of full-time studies consists of 30 credits. Swedish credits correspond directly to ECTS credits.

The Royal College of Music (KMH) does not use a grading scale. On completion of a course only one of the following grades is to be used for all students: pass or fail.


KMH offers a small number of courses with all tuition in English language. We do not require a specific result from any language test, such as TOEFL or IELTS, but you are expected to have a high level of proficiency in English. Recommended level accordning to the European language scale is B2.

Study as a programme student

If you want to become a programme student at KMH and get a degree from KMH, you apply in the same way as Swedish students. Note that Swedish is part of the general eligibility in Sweden for studies at undergraduate level at universities in Sweden, ie also for KMH.
