If you decide to do your Masters in Sweden you will benefit from many advantages that the Swedish higher education landscape offers. One of them is the classroom atmosphere. Social interactions among students and teachers are very open and pleasant, supporting the development of soft skills and personal growth. You will be encouraged to think independently and to take the initiative. Universities in Sweden attach great importance to group assignments and teamwork as well as real-world learning at the workplace.
One special feature of postgraduate study in Sweden is the high level of curricular flexibility. In most cases, you can choose and combine courses to create your own personal study programme.
Many Masters programmes in Sweden are taught in English, so it shouldn’t be a problem for you to find a programme even without speaking the Swedish language. That said, it is always a good idea to take a language course; after all, you never know if you will ever have the chance again to learn Swedish.
A great advantage of studying in Sweden is that the public universities do not require any tuition fees from EU residents. Non-EU students, by contrast, have to pay between about €9,000 and €16,000 per year, depending on the university.
The Swedish people are one of the most tolerant nations in Europe. They are very welcoming and proud of their egalitarian and multicultural society. As an international student you won’t have problems mingling with the Swedish people, especially in the university environment.
You can spend your free time in Sweden pursuing many outdoor activities like hiking, cycling and skiing or just enjoying the beautiful rural landscapes. Swedish cities offer cultural highlights such as theatres, museums and cinemas. Sweden caters to all tastes.
