Information about COVID-19

A Safe Semester Abroad

The health and safety of our students, staff, and faculty are our top priority. We are confident that our Spring ’22, Fall ’22, and Spring ’23 semesters will proceed safely and without interruption.

However, please note that if your home institution or The Swedish Program cancels the semester prior to departure for an unforeseen development, you will receive a full refund, including your deposit.

All students must be vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to attend the Spring ’22, Fall ’22, and Spring ’23 semesters. The decision to make vaccination a requirement was motivated by our commitment to implementing the most effective protocols to protect student health. Additionally, at this time, travelers from the United States who can present proof of full vaccination are exempt from Swedish entry restrictions for testing and quarantine. More information about these requirements and other protocols will be sent to all accepted students.

The Program will implement health and safety protocols based on local and national recommendations. For more information, visit the Swedish Public Health Agency website. Please keep in mind that recommendations are updated regularly, and thus, may change before and during each semester. We are monitoring the situation closely and will notify incoming and current students about relevant developments.

Please e-mail us with any questions or concerns.
