The university offers a number of integrated semester-long English language courses for both international and Swedish students at the basic level. Fall offerings include courses in political science, business administration, supply chain management, economics I, international law and human rights, modern marketing practices, globalization and society, organizational and management studies, peace and development studies, English, aspects of Scandinavia, sports and culture, as well as, individual courses in several areas.

Spring offerings include English linguistics, managing in a global context, economics II, intercultural studies, concepts in film, management accounting and IS/IT, teacher education-global and intercultural perspectives, as well as, individual courses in mathematics, computer science, information systems and terotechnology.


ISEP students will be placed in student dormitories, with rent to be paid by the International Office. Students are required to complete an internal application for enrollment to Linnaeus University. As long as this is completed in a timely manner, students will receive accommodation automatically and will not have to complete any separate housing application.



ISEP Exchange students will receive a meal stipend based on the cost of living for students in Växjö and Kalmar, which they can use to purchase groceries and cook meals in shared facilities. This stipend is disbursed in the form of a prepaid debit card, which students will receive after arrival. Please be prepared to fund your first few days of arrival until the cards can be released.

All ISEP students will be expected to budget for their meals accordingly, and can ask their ISEP Student Services Coordinator for tips, as well as check out ISEP's resources for Budgeting for Study Abroad.
