NORDsummer is a special eight-week intensive language program for people interested in learning Scandinavian languages. NORD allows students from all around the world to jump-start their Scandinavian language studies and have access to languages that are not commonly available elsewhere. NORDsummer is one of seven Wisconsin Intensive Summer Language Institutes (WISLI) and is sponsored by the Language Program Office (LPO); European Studies at UW-Madison, a Title VI National Resource Center; and German,Nordic, and Slavic+ (GNS+) at UW-Madison. Collaborating with WISLI, the LPO, European Studies, and GNS+, offers competitive pricing for out-of-state residents, extra-curricular cultural programming, and pedagogy training and support for NORD instructors.

Note: If you are a minor, you must be a Junior or Senior in high school and currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program to apply! See our Minor Policy for more details and requirements.

Applications for 2024-25 FLAS awards, including for the 2024 summer session, were due February 14, 2024, by 11:59 p.m. Please visit FLAS’s homepage for more information and to access the application.
