Welcome to Sankt Ignatios Folkhögskola

We believe that education is the key to equip people of all ages and backgrounds to discover their potential and engage with the world as active citizens

At Sankt Ignatios we offer education and training to women and men from many different nationalities and backgrounds. Our aim is to help people to develop the necessary skills and understanding of themselves and their traditions to empower and equip them to play a full role in Swedish society and in their Churches. Whether you are a woman with a family from Syria or Iraq looking for a gymnasium level education in order to get into the workplace, a monk from Eritrea or Ethiopia looking for a training that will enable you to serve the Church as a priest or cantor, or someone brought up in Sweden who simply wishes to study the Eastern Christian tradition in one of our high-quality undergraduate or graduate degree programs, we can offer you an education that will help you to make the link between the past and future, between the local and the global, between who you are now and who you want to be!
