Overall Experience
January 12, 2023 Semester Of Growth
I gained a ton of independence. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Absolutely worthwhile - as someone with a personal connection to Sweden, I was able to make use of the semester to explore said connection, visit with family, and improve my Swedish! - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was a meaningful experience. Having lived in Germany for 8 years, I was able to easily adapt to the environment and make new friends with the locals. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Past Review Great
Different academic setting with good people - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Learned to be independent, experienced much of european life for the first time - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned about being independent. It was a very different experience to be in a city and have to commute to school every day and schedule my time. I think that it was really worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Opportunity to travel a lot and meet lots of cool people. Interesting classes about Swedish culture. Very worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Learned how to spend a lot of time alone - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I leared how to be more independent, and how to spend time alone. I also heightened my ability to navigate and find my way around a foreign city. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I fell in love with Sweden and learned a lot about Europe in general, but also gained a new appreciation for home sweet home (the USA)! My time abroad was totally worthwhile. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Swedish Program: Stockholm - Stockholm University
The program gave us a taste of a very independent lifestyle. The program coordinators are available and always willing to help, but for the most part your life and schedule are completely up to you. As I mentioned previously, the flexible and lenient academic system affords you a large amount of free time. Not to mention that... - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes. It has made me aware of what aspects of American culture I take for granted. Swedish culture was not so obviously different, yet I gradually found myself missing aspects of home and appreciating aspects of Sweden that I never experienced in the U.S. - Grinnell College View Entire Review
Stockholm was great! I recommend it all the time! - Grinnell College View Entire Review
Overall very worthwhile. I learned a lot about the city and the culture. I met some really great people. And I learned a lot about myself and how to be more independent. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
Totally worthwhile. I gained another family and learned how to be more independent!! - Middlebury College View Entire Review
My abroad experience was one that I'll fondly remember for my entire life. I learned that I could be comfortable living in not only a large city, but a large city in a foreign country. Stockholm was one of the most beuatiful cities I've seen, both visually and culturally, and I hope I can one day live there as an adult. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I learned to get around in a city, cook for myself, being comfortable in new places, and a lot more confidence in myself trying new things - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I loved my time in Sweden. Swedish culture is so interesting and I really learned how to take a break and surround myself with engaging people. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
I gained new friendships and a new perspective on what I want to do with my life. Absolutely a worthwhile experience. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I learned so much about the Swedish culture and had a wonderful time traveling around Europe. I made some really close friends as well. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
It was worthwhile. Getting to take classes about the US healthcare and justice system from a welfare state perspective was shocking and worthwhile. Living in an egalitarian society has also completely reshaped the way I will allow myself to be treated in the US. We have a lot to learn. A lot. - Middlebury College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with The Swedish Program: Stockholm, Sweden
I learned a lot about the culture and being on my own and taking care of myself. I gained knowledge from my teacher and made some great friendships. It was definitely worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Going abroad to Sweden was one of the best experiences of my life. The Swedish Program is a bit unorganized and not taking classes with Swedish students made it difficult to make close Swedish friends. Nevertheless, besides these few faults, I had the time of my life. For the most part, my professors were great, helpful, and int... - The Swedish Program: Stockholm, Sweden View Entire Review

About

The Swedish Program at the Stockholm School of Economics (SSE) is a highly regarded study abroad program, offering a full range of liberal arts courses in English. Founded in 1987, we are a small program (enrolling between 40- 50 students each semester) within a prestigious international university. We are committed to providing our students with both a challenging academic and rewarding cultural experience. Classes are small, creative, and based in student participation. What students learn in the classroom is relevant to their everyday cultural experiences. Students have opportunities to meet and interact with Swedes at SSE, through our housing options, and through the Contact Family & Buddy Program.  The challenge of study abroad is to learn about the institutions and people of a different culture as you gain a better understanding of yourself and your own country. The distinctive features of the Program – our curricular breadth, high academic standards, commitment to cultural integration, university setting, and small size – effectively promote this multifaceted learning experience.
