Practical information

There are numerous of practical things to keep in mind when applying to a Master's programme, especially if it is in anther country. Here are a few important ones.

Financial support

If you are a student from a country where citizens require entry visas to get into Sweden you need to show that you have financial support secured for your period of studies in Sweden. For more details, see the Swedish Migration Board's website: http://www.migrationsverket.se

Grants

Stockholm University offers some grants for students that need to pay tuition fees. The Swedish Institute also provides information about studying in Sweden including some information about the cost of living in Sweden and scholarships, www.studyinsweden.se.

Housing

Students who are part of an exchange agreement should contact the International Exchange Unit for help to find housing.

Other students should contact housing companies directly. Stockholm is a large city and for many an attractive place to live and work in. It is therefore in some cases difficult to find a place to live and we recommend students to start looking for housing as soon as possible. The University notice boards often contain available rooms/apartments. Also make use any contacts you may already have that can help find a place to live. Some usefull websites are listed below.
