Uppsala: Summer Swedish


The Summer Swedish program in Uppsala, Sweden is a program recommended by Augustana’s Scandinavian Studies program but not affiliated with or managed by Augustana College. Sponsored by Uppsala International Summer Session, a private language school in the university town of Uppsala, the summer program is structured in a series of 3-week intensive courses. Augustana recommends students enroll in two or all three of these periods. With the preapproval of the Scandinavian Studies Department students can transfer up to 6 credits of Scandinavian Studies coursework back to Augustana. This program is appropriate for students of Scandinavian Studies with prior study of Swedish language or pure beginners.

Students enroll directly at UISS and credit is transferred back to Augustana. Students must earn the equivalent of a C or higher in each course at KUEI in order to transfer these credits back to Augustana.

The program offers coursework in Beginning (100), Intermediate (200) and Advanced Swedish(300). The program cost is typically in a range of $5,500-$6,000 for the full 9-week program and includes housing, one meal per day and several group excursions and social events.

Students interested in this program follow the following process:

  1. Consult with an advisor from the Scandinavian Studies program
  2. Enroll directly at the UISS website
  3. Upon acceptance to UISS's summer program, notify the Office of International & Off-Campus Programs for assistance with required course transfer and travel documents.


Eligibility and program cap: Requires a 2.00 GPA and sophomore status. No prior study of Swedish is required.

Contact: Dr. M. Safstrom or any of the Scandinavian Studies faculty

Dates: This program typically operates between mid-July and mid-August.
