I came across UISS when I was looking for a language course to complement my self-studies of Swedish so I signed up to be a “9-weeker” during Summer 2017 and it turned out to be much more than just a language course. Whoever you are, this program is for you. I mean if you don’t mind improving your language abilities in every aspect, learning a lot about Swedish music, history, society and more, experiencing the much fun student life in Uppsala, making a ton of friends and doing all that together with more than a couple hundreds of people from all over the world in a warm and welcoming international atmosphere that’s ensured by UISS’ incredibly friendly and competent staff. However be warned: a 3-week stay is too short.

Uppsala is such a beautiful city and I felt home from the first day to the last. I was able to study Swedish, music, drama and Swedish society with highly experienced and skilled teachers and meet a lot of nice people. Many thanks to the lovely staff and participants who made it possible.
