Study Swedish in Uppsala, Sweden and meet the world

Uppsala International Summer Session organizes summer courses in the Swedish language for students and professionals. The minimum age requirement is 18. Since 1963 thousands of students have attended our courses. Their reasons and backgrounds vary, but after attending UISS they have at least one thing in common: a better proficiency in the language and a deeper understanding of the Swedish culture.

The UISS offers a lot more than just a language program. Besides our intensive language courses, we offer cultural and other studies to help you get a better understanding of Sweden, its culture and its history. We organize social events so you will get to know your fellow students better, film nights and trips to interesting places in the vicinity of Uppsala and Stockholm, and longer trips to Lapland, Finland and Värmland.

Every year 35 – 40 students return to the UISS.

The 2018 PDF booklet “Summer Studies” contains the vital information from this website and can be downloaded from October 2017! The 2017 PDF booklet which largely contains the same information can be downloaded until then.

Best language program in 2016

GoAbroad.com named the UISS as the best language program in 2016. One of the reviews that led to this recommendation:

Truly a great experience, both in learning the Swedish language and the local culture. The provided facilities are fantastic, and the abundance of trips to Swedish hotspots, and a huge amount of traditional Swedish themed events, result in an extremely educational experience. All the teachers I have had the pleasure to study under were highly proficient, as well as being great and funny people. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a top notch course in all things Swedish.
