Program Description

Linnaeus University is located in two cities, Kalmar and Växjö, both with nature just around the corner, adding to the quality of life during your studies. Växjö has been declared 'the greenest city in Europe' and is surrounded by wonderful forests and lakes, while Kalmar is a charming old city dating back to the Middle Ages, beautifully located by the Baltic Sea.

International students often mention the informal relationships with teachers as one of the things they appreciate most as students at Linnaeus University. Other aspects that receive praise are the modern and environmentally-friendly buildings, good connections with businesses and organisations in the area, and the reality-based case studies which add a real-life dimension to the studies.

Eligibility Requirements:

* 2.75 GPA
* No language prerequisite
* Sophomore standing

This is a direct exchange program between Pacific and Linnaeus University in Sweden. You do not need to speak any Swedish prior to studying at Linnaeus University, which teaches all courses in English.

Pacific's Bilateral Exchange programs are suitable for students with strong leadership skills who want an immersion experience studying with local students, relying on local services with no management or oversight by Pacific or other U.S. providers.
