What is a BootCamp?
SSES Bootcamps are full-time one-week highly interactive deep-dive into an exciting challenge area, where students work alongside each other to learn, solve, bond and grow. This social immersion takes place somewhere around the globe, or in beautiful Stockholm, in collaboration with our world-class academic partners.

Through a meticulous selection process, we handpick students from each of our six member universities in order to maximize diversity of disciplines, perspectives, cultures and genders. Bootcamps are completely free and students and alumni of SSES and our six member universities are all welcome to apply.
