  Copenhagen, Denmark
Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and is home to about 1.5 million of Denmark's 5.3 million residents. Considered a very safe metropolitan area with low crime rates, students can easily explore its many plazas and neighborhoods by walking or taking the extensive public transportation system. Founded at the end of the 12th century, Copenhagen has many historical attractions and cultural and educational institutions.

Stockholm, Sweden
Stockholm is the capital of Sweden and the hub for industry, fashion, politics, and research. Study alongside the urbanites of Stockholm, who balance life in a vibrant metropolis with the city’s beautiful and serene surroundings. On any given day, find yourself in the midst of a busy crowd of Stockholmers on their way to the day’s next plan. Wander to the old city where the buildings, cobblestones, and narrow streets take you back to Stockholm’s 13th-century beginning. Comprised of 14 islands and a transit system that travels across waterways, Stockholm is well connected. While some corners are characteristically urban, others are natural landscapes – making your next cross-country ski adventure or kayaking afternoon within easy reach. Sweden prides itself on openness, diversity, and equality. As home to the Nobel Prize, Stockholm is a capital led by forward-looking decision makers, artists, innovators, and scholars.

  Housing: Live as local students do in university housing. Universities in Stockholm and Copenhagen do not have housing on their campuses. Instead, co-ed residential buildings accommodate university students across these cities. In Stockholm, these residences are called Studentboende and in Copenhagen, Kollegium. WU students are required to live in these residences.

Student Life: DIS staff plan social and cultural events to bring students, faculty and staff together. Copenhagen and Stockholm offer many entertainment and dining options for students to take advantage of.

On-Site Support: In addition to program faculty, DIS has many staff members on-site in charge of academics, library resources, IT services, study tours, housing and more.

  Estimated Program Price: Students pay all summer program related fees to the program sponsor or host university directly.  Please Contact the program sponsor or host for tuition, billing and payment details.
