Can I go on a swedish course to increase my chances to get a job and keep my A-kassa?


I’m on A-kassa about a half year in now, I want to increase my chances to get a job and I have thoughts of participating to SFINX (Swedish for engineers) because proficiency in Swedish could really help me to get a job in my field faster. The course is daily full time but I still want to seek jobs in the meantime and would of course cancel my studies if I get a job during this course because a job is my goal, my question is if I can keep my A-kassa in the meantime when I’m studying?



  • Hej Dave!
    Thanks for your post.
    Yes, there is a possibility to study while on a-kassa.
    • If the studypace is full time one can study for 15 days.
    • If the studypace is 50 percent or less one can study 20 weeks.
    You can either attend the SFINX-course full time for 15 days (3 weeks) and then quit. Or you can check if there is a SFINX-course with 50 percent studypace.

    Remember to apply for the studies in Mina sidor.

    I hope my answer was useful and that you find a course that suits you.

    Trevlig helg!

  • Hej Annika, as you have mentioned that "Remember to apply for the studies in Mina sidor."
    so my question here is that when to apply for studies in mina sidor??
    1) One can get admission in a course and then apply in mina sidor before actually starting the studies or....
    2) A person should first apply in mina sidor & get a permission from a-kassa and only then can apply for a course (remember i am asking about applying for admission that is way before actually starting the course).
  • Hello Ahsan!

    Number 2 is the correct answer. You have to apply with us first. If you are insecure you can always send us a link to the course plan when you apply. Or even better; call a case officer 9-16 on 084123300 and get good advice.

    Have a nice day!

    Kind regards, Anna
