Bible School


Dates & Fees

We offer two main Bible school programs – full year and summer. The full year program is from September to May and it covers our complete survey of the Bible. Within the full year program we have the spring term and winter term. You can apply for these individually, however we recommend committing to the full school year to enjoy the program continuity and community experience. Students who choose to sign up for the winter term only often end up changing their mind and  adding on spring term. This is not a problem but for those outside of the European Union, you will have to purchase an additional visa.

The Summer Bible School happens in July and it is a stand alone program.

The basketball season goes from September to March. The official season ends with an optional mission trip at the end of March, but students playing basketball are encouraged to attend the full year Bible school course (September to May). Basketball outreaches and even some other basketball related opportunities will carry on into the spring for those keen on keeping up their game.

Application Details

We welcome applications and inquiries year round. There are no specific academic prerequisites for attending Holsby. Acceptance is based on the student’s application and references. Applicants must be 18 years of age (or within three months of their 18th birthday) at the beginning of the course.

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept students applying from Africa and South Asia due to immigration issues.

Application Deadline

European Applicants
Residents of the EU may apply to Holsby Bible School up to seven days prior to the start of the Bible school course.

Non-European Applicants
To ensure adequate processing time for the student residence permit applications, we need to receive applications from non-Europeans no later than two months before the start of school. This means around the middle of July for those applying for the September start. (We will accept applications after that, but students may miss the first couple of weeks of Bible school while waiting for their residence permits to be approved.)

Visitor Residence Permit

All non-Europeans staying in Sweden longer than three months must apply for and receive a visitor residence permit (commonly called a visa) before entering Sweden. You can only apply for the residence permit AFTER receiving an acceptance letter from Holsby.
