Why Study in Sweden?

Safe and modern country 
Sweden is a safe and modern country in northern Europe, and it has a spectacular reputation as an groundbreaker. Sweden’s famed corporate brands — like Ericsson, Volvo, Ikea, and H&M— complement its cultural brands — like Ingmar Bergman, August Strindberg, Abba, Astrid Lindgren and The Cardigans.

High Standards
Sweden has a long and proud history of academic excellence, with outstanding universities dating back to the 15th century. Sweden is the home of the Nobel Prize, the world’s most prestigious academic distinction.
Swedish universities are popular for their investigative research, and this reputation is cemented with rigorous quality control and nationally certified degrees.

Swedish universities offer around 600 master’s degree programs in English, ranging from law to engineering. Programs are structured in response to student demand — the result is a student-centric education system, with open, informal relations between students and teachers, and where personal initiative and critical thought are valued.

International Students
Many students studying in Sweden come from abroad — 8.5% of the student body, according to the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) — making Sweden one of the world’s most inclusive countries for education.

But there is room for more: the number grew by over 80% over the last 4-year period. There are now PhD candidates from some 80 countries working towards their degrees in Sweden.

Sweden’s educational policy is based on the recognition that a multicultural student body is a resource. Competition for places is keen, but students of all nationalities may apply, given the right credentials; and degree equivalency for past studies is granted on a flexible basis.

The Swedish Institute grants hundreds of scholarships every year to help international students make their stay in Sweden more affordable. Currently, tuition fees for everyone are fully subsidized by the state. Sweden’s public spending on education is the OECD’s highest, at 4.9% of GDP. And because it costs to live in Sweden, international students can work while studying.

English is spoken by all Almost all Swedes speak fluent English. Many Swedish companies use English as their official working language. International students find that this prevalence of English makes adapting to their new surroundings much easier.
