Recommended!

UISS was a great experience. The program is so well organised and the teachers I had were engaging and helpful. The social and cultural events were a great introduction to 'normal' life in Sweden, as well as all the fun, yet sometimes strange Scandinavian traditions. :)
The accommodation I had was very comfortable. Staying in student accommodation in Uppsala was cool way to meet local students and the communal corridor, kitchen and showers were well equipped and always tidy. The day excursions and the longer trips away were great too (Värmland definitely being a highlight).
I felt my Swedish improve immensely after 9 weeks at UISS and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a fantastic and immersive language learning experience.

Lived up to the name!

Really enjoyed the experience and the courses were great! I went there to learn Swedish and was impressed by how intensive it was. Thought the days could have been a little bit shorter to allow you to recover for the next day but apart from that it never stopped! Met so many nice people and had a great time. Would do again in a couple of years.

Body and mind apart

I signed in for the 3-week Summer programme with the idea to improve my Swedish, which was important to me as a (former) student at the Scandinavian studies department. Three weeks later, not only my Swedish jumped from level B2 to C1; I had 7 new friends! I had the pleasure to spend my days with people from all around Europe: We used to study together, eat together and have fun together on weekends. They became my linguistic family and I was deeply sad when I had to go back home and leave them. Now, after more than 6 months have passed, we still keep in touch (We write letters to each other, mostly in Swedish).
My August in Uppsala was not only a language course. It was a thrilling and intense experience I will always carry in my heart. In fact, I often catch myself bringing back memories from Sweden or talking to a friend I met there, in my thoughts (of course, in Swedish :)). And this I do while walking along the streets of Sofia.

Great experience

This program was excellent. I could learn not only language(Swedish) but art, culture and more even though my English skill is not good. We can make friend coming all over the world. I recommend someone who wants to enter the UISS.
