CIEE's program was the highlight of my undergraduate career. Unlike a lot of study abroad programs, this one allowed me (and fervently encouraged me!) to branch out and make friends with Swedes instead of just people in the program (though I got both!). Uppsala is a great student town--safe, fun, and filled with young people. I met my boyfriend during this program (and we've been together since) and I've visited Uppsala/Stockholm several times since the program ended because of how much I fell in love with the country. Academically, Uppsala can accommodate many types of students--science-oriented, law/justice, humanities, engineering. The Swedish class was a surprising highlight. I was in a class with exchange students from all over the world, and the language is relatively easy to learn. What I also loved is that you live in apartment buildings with other university students--the majority of whom are Swedish. I don't know of many other study abroad programs, other than home-stays, where you got so much access to natives.

Would you recommend this program?
Yes, I would
