As an exchange student, you stay in one of our selected host families and attend a local school Monday to Friday. Some of the schools in Sweden are private, but are still free of charge. It is not mandatory to take extra language courses, but we encourage our inbound students to participate in courses as it has a positive effect on schoolwork and socializing.
You can choose to stay for five or ten months starting in January or August. A typical Swedish school year begins in mid-August and ends in early June with a ten weeks summer holiday.
