DIS - Study Abroad in Scandinavia is a government-recognized, high-quality study abroad program established in 1959. All DIS courses and academic programs are intellectually stimulating, challenging, and are all taught in English. But at DIS, study abroad is not solely about academics, it is about providing a one-of-a-kind opportunity for students to experience new situations and build and develop leadership skills for a globalized world.

The program is based in Stockholm, Sweden. While rich in history and culture, Sweden prides itself on progressive thinking, openness, diversity, and equality. As home to the Nobel Prize and a list of prestigious universities, institutions, and leading innovators, Stockholm offers the context of a capital led by forward-looking decision makers and scholars.
