IW Uppsala

16. January 2017GeneralInternational Week

Welcome to the IW Uppsala!

Uppsalaekonomerna and Uppsala IW committee welcome you to spend one week in Sweden in Spring 2017! We do have to confess that the cover picture is Stockholm, but as Uppsala is located just at 40 min from Stockholm, you will not only get to know Sweden from the view of local students, you will also experience the vibe of the Swedish capital.
The participants will learn everything about Swedish culture, from traditions, food and drinks to getting to know Swedish people and networking with local companies, all thanks to the wide mix of events throughout week. Uppsala is an old, traditional yet lively student city where everything is within a walking distance. Uppsala university is one of the oldest Scandinavian universities founded in 1477, which reflects on the beautiful environment around the city.
You will participate in several events, one of which is a traditional “gasque” (really important tradition of students in Sweden, a dinner/party you have to dress up for – we included a picture, because we had to google it to see what it actually was). Visit the country side and see traditional Swedish cottages and enjoy a Swedish week you are not going to forget (we included a picture of a country house as well, because they just are so pretty). A Swedish student will be hosting you throughout the whole week, so get ready for your Swedish experience you have always wanted to have.
Duration: May 11th – 18th

Application Deadline: February 08th
