Help to greet our visitors – train as a guide in Gothenburg and West Sweden.

As tourism to Gothenburg and the region grows it becomes increasingly important to give a warm welcome to our visitors.

On the link below you can read about the University of Gothenburg’s tour guide training. The West Sweden Guide course (60 accreditation points) prepares you to work independently as a guide (e.g. in the museum and tourism sector) through classes in history/archaeology, culture and nature with a regional bias, as well as practical speaking and presentation skills.

The course also gives you the knowledge and skills that are needed to become a professional and effective city guide. Among other things you get to learn about Gothenburg’s history, its architecture, industry and about Gothenburg City of Events. At the end of the course you can take a test to become an authorised city guide in Gothenburg.
