Review

My semester with the Swedish Program was truly a life-changing experience! I lived with a host family in the suburbs and they truly became my second family. The program does an amazing job of finding welcoming Swedish families and matching them to students (and also matching roommates for the students who opt to live in apartments). The only real downside was that I had a fairly long commute, but I became very savvy with Stockholm's great public transportation system. My classes were all very interesting and engaging, and I loved getting to know my Swedish professors and hearing their points of view. Classes were challenging enough that I knew this wasn't a "throwaway" semester, as many abroad program are, but did not assign too much work so I had plenty of free time to explore the city. We also had two week-long breaks which allowed me to spend lots of time travelling and seeing other parts of Europe.

I absolutely would recommend the Swedish Program to anyone thinking of going abroad in Northern Europe. The program does a great job of taking care of its students and Sweden is a wonderful country.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
