Program Description:
DIS Stockholm
Study alongside the urbanites of Stockholm, who balance life in a vibrant metropolis with the city’s beautiful and serene surroundings. On any given day, find yourself in the midst of a busy crowd of Stockholmers on their way to the day’s next plan. Wander to the old city where the buildings, cobblestones, and narrow streets take you back to Stockholm’s 13th-century beginning. Comprised of 14 islands and a transit system that travels across waterways, Stockholm is well connected. While some corners are characteristically urban, others are natural landscapes – making your next cross-country ski adventure or kayaking afternoon within easy reach.

At DIS Stockholm, you will choose from a range of programming options, including gender and sexuality, global economics, medical practice, psychology, neuroscience, and public health. All courses are taught in English. You will choose one core course (which includes a weeklong study tour) in your designated program and then fill your schedule with electives from any discipline. Swedish language is highly recommended but not required.

For a list of courses pre-approved for SU credit, please click on the "Courses Offered" link at the top of this page. There is no guarantee courses on the list will be offered during your semester abroad, so please refer to the World Partner website for the most up-to-date course offerings. If you want to take a course that is not already approved, Syracuse Abroad will assist in obtaining approval from the appropriate SU academic department.

DIS offers several different housing options:
  • Homestay
  • Residential Community (with other DIS students)
  • Living and Learning Communities (with other DIS students)
  • Studentboende (dorm-style residential buildings located throughout the city with Swedish, international, and varying numbers of DIS students)
Please refer to the Housing Options page on the DIS Stockholm website for more details.

If you do not hold a passport from Norway or the European Union, you will apply for a Swedish Visitor’s Permit. Upon acceptance to DIS Stockholm, DIS will send you the necessary paperwork for the Visitor’s permit application. Do not begin the application until you are directed to do so.

Program Cost
You will pay SU tuition and can apply all SU financial aid except work-study. A program fee which you pay to SU includes room and board in one of the DIS options, integrated study tours and field trips, international travel insurance, and services not covered by tuition and for which a separate fee is not charged.
