Overall Experience
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
June 29, 2018 Amazing Experience!
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
yes - Tufts University View Entire Review
Stockholm was great! I recommend it all the time! - Grinnell College View Entire Review
I would love to go back to Sweden; I'm looking at graduate programs in Scandinavia now. It was really great to get a perspective on a country that is almost as prosperous as the United States (right now it may actually be more prosperous), and yet so incredibly different. - Tufts University View Entire Review
Past Review
Yes. I enjoyed spending a semester in Stockholm with some wonderful people. - Hamilton College View Entire Review
July 02, 2018 A Semester Abroad
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
I would say it was worthwhile, but not because of anything the program did for me. I could have gone to Sweden on my own and probably gotten more out of it. - Carleton College 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 around 40 students each semester) within a large international university. Originally located at Stockholm University, we moved to our current location at SSE. We are committed to providing our students with both a challenging academic and rewarding everyday cultural experience. Classes are small, creative, and based on 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 and through our host and contact family program. Students can also live in apartments located throughout the city.
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, our university setting, and small size – effectively promote this multifaceted learning experience.
