Welcome to Sweden!

Sweden, the largest of the Scandinavian countries, is also considered a leader in innovation, ranking in the top 5 countries with most patent requests per capita. Sweden has fostered many internationally known enterprises such as Ericsson, Volvo, IKEA and H&M. Sweden is a world leader in the IT-sector as well as in environmental technology, engineering, medicine and biotechnology. Modern-day Sweden is known for its sense of social justice and fairness. It has the highest level of wealth equality in the world, one of the world’s lowest gender pay gaps, publically funded healthcare for all, and equal rights for homosexual and heterosexual couples. Add on striking northern European beauty, and free tuition for EU students (fees for non-EU students were introduced recently), and the appeal of studying in Sweden is pretty strong.

Studying Abroad in Sweden

Sweden is one of those countries that everyone knows is beautiful and peaceful, but the details always seem a bit fuzzy. Whether you know Sweden as the home of the midnight sun, IKEA, Volvo, or a rich history of Vikings, one or two study abroad semesters here will confirm or break your stereotypes. Further, studying abroad in Sweden may not be the cheapest, but it is incredibly safe, close to other European destinations, and filled with some of the most down-to-earth people.

Study in Sweden

Choose to study in Sweden, and you will find yourself in a nation which has always punched well above its weight. From being the center of an empire in the 17th century, to being the home and birthplace of the Nobel Prize, its influence has long spread well beyond its borders, despite the fact that its total population is no bigger than a large city. Whether you are just planning a short visit to study in Sweden as an exchange student, studying a master's program or study a full degree, you will benefit from the Swedish open and informal atmosphere, moderate tuition fees as well as the large array of progressive courses you can choose from.

Scholarships to Study in Sweden

Swedish government initiates SISS as an international award scheme that focuses to develop future global leaders. The program is funded by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Sweden and administered by the Swedish Institute (SI). The Swedish Institute (SI), a government agency, offers scholarships each year for international students and researchers coming to Sweden.
