The UISS Summer Session is an absolute highlight of my summers in Sweden.
UISS served me well, when I had to learn Swedish quickly after I started a job in Sweden and had almost no knowledge of the language. With the 2- and 3-weeks sessions you learn a lot in a short time and it is still compatible with your job. Even when I didn’t need Swedish for my job anymore, I kept coming back to Uppsala, because I love to indulge in the Swedish language, literature and culture.
I have made many good friends from all over the world in Uppsala. Some of them have I met multiple times because they keep coming back, too. If you have the opportunity to take part in UISS, seize it!
