Welcome to the SI News Service, the exclusive online news service provided by The Local, Sweden’s largest English-language news channel, with support from the Swedish Institute.
This news and discussion site offers customized versions for viewing from a computer, mobile phone, or tablet. By activating your account you've gained access to:
- Daily news stories from Sweden, written in English and hand-picked for NFGL members
- Exclusive features about Swedish life and culture written especially for SI scholarship recipients
- A weekly e-newsletter summarizing the previous week and previewing the week ahead
In addition, registered users can engage in debate and discussion with other NFGL members in a secure online environment.
As a closed, login-protected site, SI News Network is available ONLY to registered NFGL members. Others cannot access the exclusive content and no one outside the NFGL network can view registered users’ comments.
SI Network News also features detailed “talking points” about current events and trends written exclusively for NFGL members by The Local’s expert journalists.
Users wishing to communicate with NFGL members currently studying in Sweden can also submit announcements that, once approved, will appear at the top of the site.
If you have any questions, comments, or want to publish an announcement, email us at [email protected].
