Stockholm University

Study at Stockholm University for a semester or academic year as an exchange student for an opportunity to fully integrate into the academic, social, and cultural life at the university. Take courses along-side degree-seeking Stockholm University students, live in student housing, and participate in all aspects of student life.

Stockholm University offers many courses taught in English. Additionally, English is widely spoken in Sweden so UNC students are able to easily navigate the university and city without a language barrier.


Stockholm is one of the world's most dynamic capital cities, ranked among the top five in the world when it comes to intellectual capital, innovation, and quality of life. As one of Scandinavia's most exciting cultural cities, Stockholm is famous for its craft and design, music production and international cuisine. Stockholm is a cultural hub and Sweden's business center with many green areas surrounded by water, making it an ideal place to enjoy a relaxed and exciting student life.

Stockholm University is located a few minutes from the city center in the middle of the world's first National City Park.
