The Swedish Program 

Please be reminded that you need to meet different deadlines when applying to this program:

  • Princeton application deadline: October 16, 2020
  • Program application deadline: October 10, 2020
The Swedish Program offers students the opportunity to take courses across several liberal arts disciplines, such as psychology, public policy, economics, and more. Small class sizes allow encourage active engagement and participation. Students even have access to a select number of courses taught at the prestigious Stockholm School of Economics. 

The University

The Stockholm School of Economics is internationally recognized as one of Europe’s leading business schools. This small and selective institution enrolls approximately 2,000 students across a variety of undergraduate and graduate programs. SSE is distinguished by its deep commitment to culture, arts, and social responsibility. These commitments make SSE a great match for The Swedish Program’s liberal arts curriculum.

The Setting

The capital city of Stockholm is beautiful and unique: located on 14 islands, it is home to some of the best museums, cultural institutions, restaurants, and night spots in the world.



Students take four courses, worth 4 credits each, to be the equivalent of four Princeton credits. Students may take a combination of program-taught and direct enrollment courses while on the program, and some areas include Economics, Psychology, Public Policy, Film Studies, and more. All courses are taught in English, and students do not need to know Swedish. Please visit The Swedish Program website for more information on courses


For Princeton approval, participants must have at least a 3.0/ B average for the fall and spring semesters prior to the semester of study abroad.

The Swedish Program offers two fully-integrated housing options: fully furnished apartments located throughout Stockholm, or host families. 

Apartments typically will have two to four students in each, with one to two students per bedroom. Students will have laundry facilities and a kitchen, and students will be responsible for purchasing their own food and preparing their own meals. Most students commute between 25 to 40 minutes for classes. Students living in apartments have the option of being assigned “contact families” with whom they meet throughout the semester. 

Host families give students the opportunity for daily immersion in Swedish family life. Students will have their own furnished bedroom and meals will be provided by the family. Most students who live with a host family have a 40 to 50 minute commute every day. Host families are limited, so it is recommended that you apply early if you are interested in this housing options.
