The campus of SU is located in Stockholm. This is a fairly large city that opens up many opportunities for students: from cafes, restaurants and other entertainment to internships at large companies. But an urban campus can also be a disadvantage, because big city life distracts some students from their studies. The university students have access to the library. It is an integral part of learning. Students come here for educational literature or to do their homework. SU accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
