Laid back, but very successful. There is a reason why the Scandinavians are at the top of the PISA studies when it comes to education. Scandinavian students stay in the same school for the first nine to ten years. After that they continue their studies for another two to four years at a different school. The interaction between students and teachers is very straightforward - the result is a relaxed teaching atmosphere. The school year usually starts in mid-August and ends in early June.
You will have a local contact person at all time. He or she i s also responsible for the selection of host families. ON-site supervisors also take on coordinating and advisory tasks. If you have any questions or problems, you can of course contact us at any time as well.
Sprachcaffe remains close contact with the local coordinators to help you with any issues that may arise. In addition, a member of the International Office will be there to support you as well.
Family life is very important in Scandinavia. Most families have their own house or apartment. Since the Scandinavians are very liberal, young people usually enjoy a relatively large amount of freedom - but this should not prevent them from conscientiously fulfilling their domestic and, above all, school duties.
All students first take part in an orientation seminar for a couple of days in one of the country´s capitols. You will then travel on to your destination, where your host family will welcome you.
