City of Sundsvall and Östersund
A vibrant place in the middle of Sweden, where you’ll find the perfect mix of nature and city life. Sundsvall is one of the biggest cities in northern Sweden and is situated by the coast. Sundsvall has been elected the most student-friendly municipality in Sweden several times. Östersund is the number one winter city, a Mecca for sports fans. The short distance to the mountains and to the country’s top downhill centre – Åre – makes Östersund a popular choice for students. The city and its surroundings have plenty of recreational activities to offer all year around.
