About Summer at DIS

Experience Scandinavia and Europe as the locals do with cultural and hands-on learning inside and outside the classroom.

Why study abroad at DIS this summer?

Course Choice

Choose from over 80 courses that allow you to build your resumé, network with experts in the field, and explore Europe through an academic lens. Through the signature Lab & Research Session or the Architecture & Design Session, you gain international experience and can expand your skills from a Nordic perspective.

Opportunities to Mix and Match Sessions

Build your own unique study abroad experience – stay for one session or create a complementary summer package by adding sessions at DIS Copenhagen, DIS Stockholm, or both.

One Summer, Two Cities

If you take advantage of studying at both locations, transport between Copenhagen and Stockholm is organized by DIS at no extra cost.

Academic Excellence

Intellectually stimulating courses taught in English challenge you to examine issues from various perspectives, as you debate, analyze, and reflect on contemporary topics and burning issues.

Experiential Learning

DIS faculty teach what they do, bringing theory to life by sharing real-life experiences and cases, and expanding your network with local Field Studies and guest lectures.

Course-Integrated Study Tours

Europe will be your classroom when on week-long Study Tours during Sessions 2, 3, and the Architecture & Design Session. Study Tours further contextualize your understanding of topics while in a relevant European destination.


Academic counseling and personal support resources are available to you during your time abroad, providing you a solid foundation upon which to grow.

No Hidden Costs

Tuition includes housing, Study Tours (if offered in your session), Field Studies, textbooks, local commuting costs, transportation between DIS locations for students studying in consecutive sessions, and an Arrival Workshop.

Commitment to Diversity and Respect

DIS is committed to building an inclusive learning environment in a Scandinavian context. In doing this, we want to provide a place of discussion and debate of different views, while we uphold our unwavering commitment to diversity and respect for others.

My DIS courses have taken me on numerous Field Studies throughout the city. They are a wonderful way to see a subject’s implications in the real world, and truly take academics at DIS to the next level!
