Are you interested in Social Science, but also have a passion for English? Then our PACE programme should be something to look into!
At IHGR we offer an exciting opportunity for students who wish to study university level courses in English, while in high school. This advanced programme (spets) offers an accelerated pace of learning during the courses of English 5 and 6 along with an array of extra classes in rhetorical skills, academic writing, literature and linguistics. In addition, in collaboration with The University of Gothenburg, two 7.5 point courses will be offered during year 2 and 3 of the programme.
Students who want to study the Social Science Programme with Advanced Courses in English (PACE) will be asked to take an entrance exam during the spring which tests your level of English vocabulary, reading comprehension and writing skills. The results of the exam will then be combined with previous grades earned and evaluated together. Please note that applicants must meet the general requirements for entry into the Swedish Gymnasieskolan in order to be accepted into the programme.
This course of studies focuses heavily on language and Social Science subjects in an integrated way and build on IHGR’s tradition of offering high quality educational opportunities in English in the Gothenburg Region.

- SPAXXX01a Speech
