Internships & Study Abroad

We encourage our Swedish students to study abroad. U-M has well established and popular student exchanges with Uppsala University, Stockholm University, and KTH, the Royal School of Technology in Stockholm, for engineering students. We assist our students in arranging for-credit summer internships in Scandinavia, and have funding available to subsidize the cost.

For more information about study abroad and internships in Scandinavia, please contact Scandinavian Program Director Johanna Eriksson, johannae@umich.edu.

The Michigan-Uppsala undergraduate exchange gives U-M students with junior and senior standing the opportunity to study for a full academic year and earn approximately 30 credits at Uppsala University. Each U-M participant is assigned an Uppsala faculty member as "liason officer," and is fully integrated into Swedish student life. U-M students receive in-residence credit.

Courses are offered in the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Many classes are taught in English for students with less than four semesters of Swedish or the equivalent. Exchange students typically focus on Swedish language and Scandinavian area studies, taking courses in Swedish politics; Swedish history, art, and music; Swedish literature; the history and culture of Finland; and Finnish literary texts. Information is available from the U-M International Center and from Uppsala University.
