DIS Study Abroad in Scandinavia

Consider Copenhagen or Stockholm for a semester or summer and make Scandinavia your home and classroom for a challenging and fascinating experience abroad. No Danish or Swedish language required to explore, engage and grow while engaging in programs based on one Core course;  fill out your schedule with related electives. Study Human Trafficking, Scandinavian Noir, Arctic Ecology, Neuroscience, Gender Studies and more in sophisticated and increasingly multi-cultural Scandinavia. Study tours and cultural excursions (some for a fee) are part of the package.
Engineering at DIS provides an opportunity to focus on both Stockholm and the broader Nordic region, exploring cutting-edge biomedical and environmental engineering developments throughout Sweden and its neighbors.

DIS Study Abroad in Scandinavia (Copenhagen or Stockholm): Consider a Fall, Spring or Summer in beautiful and progressive Scandinavia, where Europe is a little different. A diverse range of disciplines such as EU Studies, Humanities, Natural and Social Sciences, Health Sciences and Environmental Science are taught in English. Study tours are arranged by the program and students are encouraged to explore independently and sensibly. Housing is homestay, student residences or living and learning communities.

Application Instructions: 

If you are applying for a Pitt-Recognized Program for Spring 2020 and beyond, Program Application Questions must be completed before your application can move forward, regardless of any application requirements established by your Pitt-Recognized Provider. These questions can be found under “Questionnaires”  in your application. Most require short answers of 150-200 words. Our goal is to help you to think about and express your goals for studying abroad in a way that will help you to maximize learning and growth in the following 3 phases of your experience:

  1. Pre-departure
  2. While abroad
  3. Post abroad 

While you will work on our application and your Provider’s application simultaneously, you will need to complete your Pitt application before your study abroad advisor will complete any forms or approval for your provider. Even if your Provider accepts your application, your application cannot move forward in our process until you complete our application questions.
