Stockholm is known as one of the most inclusive and welcoming cities in the world. Its contemporary, urban appeal is balanced with centuries-old history and closeness to nature. As for the things to do in Stockholm, the list is endless.

Did you know?

  • Ektorp is a sofa from IKEA. However, it’s also a beautiful place close to Stockholm. 
  • Most of Stockholm’s metro stations (about 100) have been artfully decorated with mosaics, sculptures and paintings. 
  • Stockholm, set on an archipelago of fourteen islands, is connected by 57 bridges. 
  • 13th century Storkyrkan Cathedral in the Old Town (Gamla Stan) is one of Stockholm’s oldest buildings.

Study Abroad in Scandinavia with DIS in Stockholm, Sweden


Whether you're ready to join the Stockholmers on their morning commute, or explore the narrow streets of old town taking you back to Stockholm’s 13th century beginning, a semester in Stockholm is a great experience. Stockholm is effortless to explore. Comprised of fourteen islands, with a public transit system that travels across waterways, the city is well connected. While some corners of Stockholm are characteristically urban, others are natural landscapes – making your next cross-country ski adventure or kayaking afternoon all within easy reach. Sweden is both rich in history and culture as well as world-renowned for its progressive thinking, openness, diversity, and equality. As home to the Nobel Prize and a list of prestigious universities, institutions, and leading innovators, Stockholm offers the context of a capital led by forward-looking decision makers and scholars.

Courses are taught in English and designed for upper level undergraduates (3rd-4th year). Some DIS programs also admit graduate students. At DIS, you build your own curriculum. You pick a core course from among the seven different programs on offer, and, following that, you freely select any electives from among the extensive list of liberal arts courses as long as you meet individual course prerequisites and there are no scheduling conflicts. Unique among European study abroad programs, DIS places significant emphasis on study tours as a fully integrated component of the academic program. Semester program students must take at least 12 credits and may take up to 18, including no more than five 3- credit classes (or three 3-credit and one 6-credit class). A Swedish language course is required so that you get the full benefit of living in the culture, though no language prerequisite is needed to apply.
