Special Area Studies
Special Area Studies (SAS) courses
These are regular academic courses focused on Scandinavian interest areas, European and global issues.
An introductory Swedish language course (SUSA) is offered to all exchange students before the semester starts. Students can apply to a regular Swedish Language course as part of their study plan.
About Swedish Language courses
If you have studied Scandinavian studies or have studied in a Nordic school system, you may be able to apply for courses with Swedish as the language of instruction. You can find courses taught in Swedish on our Swedish website, but be aware that not all courses listed will be open for exchange students. Courses that are open for exchange students will be available to choose from in the application link for nominated students. Typically, the language requirement for exchange students wishing to study Swedish-taught courses is 'Swedish B' or equivalent.
