Studying abroad can be a more meaningful and invigorating learning experience than at home—both inside and outside of the classroom. You may be more curious and alert than you usually are so use this heightened energy to enhance your studies as well as your cultural and geographical explorations. You may also encounter different teaching styles and course processes; be prepared to adapt and to learn.
USAC’s partnership with Linneaus University provides you with the opportunity to take part in Linneaus University's Summer Academy (LUSA), which enrolls international and Swedish students alike. All LUSA courses are taught at the campus in Kalmar and all courses are taught in English. You will enroll in one course worth 7.5 Swedish/ECTS (approximately 3.75 U.S. credits) during the summer session. Additional courses are not possible. If you require additional credit to meet financial aid eligibility requirements, you should consider seeing if your home university will allow you to take summer credits at home before the Linnaeus program, or online.
2022 LUSA courses are still being determined, however, past LUSA courses are listed below. Courses are subject to availability and approval of prerequisites which are determined by Linnaeus University.
