Information for Ukrainians in Stockholm

Municipal adult education

Adult education in Stockholm city offers those who are refugees from Ukraine and residing in Stockholm city, to study Swedish for immigrants (sfi) and Swedish as a second language (SVA). To be able to apply, you need to have your coordination number which you received from the Swedish Tax Agency.

When you have completed sfi, you may also study Swedish as a second language (SVA) with us. You may study Swedish as a Second Language (SVA) within the city's own schools:

  • Åsö Vuxengymnasium
  • SIFA
  • Vuxenutbildning Söderort.

You either apply for sfi on our website or by calling us, or visiting our reception during our opening hours.

Welcome house

If you need advice or guidance regarding work or studies, you are welcome to visit Welcome house. Welcome house can also help matching you to a job and provide information about the Swedish authorities and welfare system.

Finding work

If you are covered by the Temporary Protection Directive and need help finding work in Sweden, you are welcome to register at the Swedish Public Employment Service (Arbetsförmedlingen).

Once you have registered, you will have the opportunity to discuss what line of work you can do and what jobs that are available with an employment officer (an interpreter can be provided if needed). During this meeting the employment officer will evaluate whether you are ready to be matched to a job right away, or if other steps should be taken first. Arbetsförmedlingen will offer you the support that you need along the way.

In order to register, please visit a Arbetsförmedlingen service office (servicekontor). Bring a valid ID card – for example a passport – and the residence permit card you received from the Swedish Migration Agency (Migrationsverket). It is also helpful if you have a coordination number from the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket).
