June 10 - July 8
Spend 4 weeks in Stockholm!
Stockholm was built on 14 islands, connected by 57 bridges, earning the Swedish capital the nickname "Beauty on the Water."
English speakers will have no difficulty, as nearly all signs are written in both languages and most Swedes speak perfect English. Walking is often the best way to get around – check distances before setting out, as you might find you don't even need a bus or metro ticket. Stockholm is a city of food obsessives – no surprise given the bounty of ingredients it draws from the surrounding sea and farmlands.
Eligibility & Admission Guidelines
Undergraduates from Tulane and other institutions with a 2.5 GPA grade point average (based on a 4.0 system) and non-degree seeking students are eligible to apply for admission.
