Municipal adult education

Municipal adult education (Komvux or Kommunal vuxenutbildning) is for people who want to study at the elementary or upper secondary level but are too old to study in elementary school or upper secondary school.

The Region of Borås and BRvux

BoråsRegionens vuxenutbildning (BRvux) is the adult vocational education and training for the (Borås) region.

The region of Borås (Boråsregionen) is located in the south west of Sweden, nearby Gothenburg. The region consists of eight municipalities, Bollebygd, Borås, Herrljunga  Mark, Svenljunga, Tranemo, Ulricehamn and Vårgårda. The target group for the adult education is employed or unemployed people who need competence development or would like to change career.

To be able to study at Komvux, you have to be 20 years or older. You have different choices in your studies. You can choose to study one or several courses. Then you are qualified to continue your studies at a college or at a vocational school or another option is to start working.

We offer the opportunity to study full time or part time and sometimes via distance learning.

A student who meets the qualification requirements can combine studies at different levels within different types of schools. For example, by combining other studies at Komvux with lessons in Swedish for Immigrants (Sfi).


If Swedish isn´t your first language, you can complete your vocational studies by learning Swedish.
Swedish for immigrants (sfi)  is for those who recently moved to Sweden.
SVA stands for ”Svenska som andraspråk” (Swedish as second language) and is given on upper secondary level.


Komvux uses the A–F grading scale, the same as in upper secondary school. A is the highest grade, and F is a failing grade. Grades must be given for every completed course.


If you have training or work experience, you can validate your skills and will be able to finish your studies and find work faster.
