Education in Sweden
 

EDUCATION IS FREE

Education is free in Sweden for everybody who is registered in the country.  The institution decides who to admit and if you are viable or meet their requirements you can get an admission into the university. This is for those who want to study in a swedish university for undergraduate and postgraduate education.

 

To know more about the educational system and how to get admission you can visit  All Swedish site page. It gives a good overview of many aspects you will want to know about Sweden. I will recommend students from developing countries especially from Africa to study in Sweden.They are already many African students studying in Swedish universities. 

Because education is free and you can realise your dreams with a good choice of courses to study.

 

 It has very high standards and all you have to do is to apply. I can help you in getting a good practical understanding of what you will want to know. You just need to send me an e-mail. You can also get a list of  universities and university colleges on Study now page .

 

This  Alleducation page gives you information about education before   university studies. It can give information about the language and studies in Sweden for those who are interested in learning it.

 

What you must know if you want to study in Sweden

Education is free but not cheap in Sweden if you have admission into a state university or high school. You do not need to pay fees to study in Sweden.

You should have a good source of income from the start because if you think you can get a job to support your education, it can really be difficult and frustrating. To know more about jobs you can visit the job link on this website.

You have the right to work in Sweden when you are a student. If your stay is more than one year you  will can get a  social security number at the tax office (Skatteverket).Otherwise you will get a temporal number you can use to apply for jobs.

Scholarships  are far fetched for immigrant students and if you are studying for a doctorate program you can get financial aid for your research if you apply.

Student loans and allowance are only for Swedish students and immigrants that have a permanent resident permit in Sweden you fall in this category then, you can have the right to about  7000 to 8000  Swedish kronor a month.

Sweden is quite an expensive country to live in and everything is expensive including accommodation for students. Help to get accommodation can be provided by your university. If you have the means you can live nearby your university or live far away from the university which is always in many cases cheaper.

You can always buy a bicycle. It is the cheapest means of transport in Sweden or buy a monthly bus ticket. A bus trip cost 20 Kr or less depending on the municipal area you live.

Life and opportunities after studying in Sweden

Sweden offers free education and when you come to Sweden as a student it is good to study and get your degree. It is always good to have a degree and increase your intellectual capacity. It will always help you some where someday. Having a degree from a European university opens many doors of opportunities in Europe, USA, Africa and Asia for those who search for them.

After studying in Sweden you can apply for jobs in Sweden or other European countries such as England, Germany, or may be Canada ,USA etc.. depending on what you studied and what languages you can express your self in. The more languages you know the better for your chances.

I always recommend to people that ,if you want to get a chance in Sweden then you have to learn Swedish .They are no two ways here. If you are an engineer you can get job without knowledge of the Swedish language.If you do not want to learn Swedish but you want a career job the you have to apply for jobs in other countries. They are European scholarships that foreign students can get when you are enrolled in one of their universities.

For me personally i have a masters degree in international marketing but my chances of getting a job here is very minimal because there are no real career jobs for marketers in Sweden except you have had a lot of experience some where else. They are more jobs for computer and electrical engineers.

My advice on this issue is that when you are in Sweden get your degree and look for jobs all over Europe if you want a job out of your home country. If you want a career in Sweden then you must learn the Swedish language and you know it is always free of charge of charge.
