DIS is a non-profit study abroad foundation established in Denmark in 1959, with locations in Copenhagen and Stockholm. DIS provides semester, academic year, and summer programs taught in English, and offers high-impact learning experiences for upper-division undergraduate students from distinguished North American colleges and universities. The intellectually challenging curriculum is broad, cutting edge, and enriched by experiential learning components, including faculty-led study tours across Europe. It provides students with opportunities for meaningful cultural engagement and personal growth, which is further enriched through housing and extracurricular offerings.

DIS offers a variety of semester and summer options:

Build your semester by choosing a Core Course from 42 Academic Programs in Copenhagen and 13 in Stockholm, and select from nearly 300 upper-level courses between the two locations – all taught in English.

Or, in the summer, you can mix and match between either DIS location, spending anywhere from 3-9 week in Scandinavia studying everything form Furniture Design to Computer Science to doing research in social cognition in children.

Additional Opportunities with DIS

If you are a semester student, you travel with your Core Course on two faculty-led Study Tours related to your Academic Program! Summer students travel on a week-long Study Tour for Session 2 courses as well as architecture and design courses. On tour, visit important sites and meet with local experts who add their perspectives to your knowledge of the field.
