Uppsala International Week is organized by students of the EBA Student Association in Uppsala, in collaboration with the IW-CO Network. The week will take place May 9th-16th 2019. The purpose is to give students from all over the world a chance to experience the unique student life of Uppsala, and receive both cultural, academic, economic and social experience.

The participants will learn everything about Swedish culture, from traditions, food and drinks to getting to know our people and networking with our companies, all thanks to the wide mix of events throughout week.

Uppsala is an old, traditional yet lively student city where everything is within a walking distance. Uppsala university is one of the oldest Scandinavian universities founded in 1477, which reflects on the beautiful environment around the city. Due to the short distance to the capital of Sweden, Stockholm, you will get the best of two worlds during your week, both the student life of Uppsala and the exciting pulse of the capital.
We hope many of you are interested in Uppsala and Sweden, and want to be a part of our fantastic week!
