The cold weather, the beautiful and nice people and the incredibly organized cities. The respect for diversity and the constant pursuit for equality in society.

Take your time to have classes related to issues which are specific to Sweden, such as the Swedish welfare state and the country’s initiatives regarding gender equality. It is great to learn about these topics in the country where they have been put in practice.
