The IW-CO Network and the IW Concept

Uppsala International Week (UIW) is hosted by Uppsala EBA Student Association (Uppsalaekonomerna) and has been since 2009. It’s a part of the worldwide networkInternational Week Coordinating Organization (IW-CO) The network includes student universities and student organizations that arrange a cultural, economic, social and business exchange between students from all over the world through a one-week long project – The International Week (IW).

The network consists of 26 business schools and universities around the world. Each member of the network organizes an international week at their business school where 20-25 students from other universities in the network participate. Being a member of the IW-CO network therefore includes the possibility to send students to other international weeks with the purpose to create and strengthen international relations between students worldwide.

What to Expect?
An International Week gives you, as a student from a university within the IW-CO Network, the unique possibility to experience a week packed with activities and events at one of our partner universities around the world. During the week you will, among other things, learn about the countries’ different cultures, businesses and student life. You will also meet a lot of international students and it’s a big opportunity to make international contacts and friends for life.

What does it cost?
With help from corporate partners and foundations, the international weeks are FREE for the attending students. The student only pays for the flight ticket and the  transportation to and from the destination. The host university is responsible for arranging accommodation, meals, activities and all other necessary transportation.
