Hello everyone,


I want to study in Sweden, I have applied for some programs at some universities and got "qualified" for one of them. I'm still waiting for my acceptance (Hopefully)

But I've calculated how much I need to study in Sweden (tuition fees and living costs) and I got a number approximately equal 90,000$, isn't that too huge? I mean I need to be the son of a millionaire to afford that... However. I'm still optimistic about finding a part-time job during semesters, and a full-time job during summer (not first year though, so I can learn Swedish and get some experience first). I'm also hopeful about getting scholarships and grants during my studying period in Sweden, if I achieve a high academic performace...


Should I be optimistic about that?
P.S: My parents are willing to support me in covering a large part of the fees and the expenses.

When looking to accept a spot in whatever department, try to find out 1) how recently and 2) how often, that department has lost the right to exam in its own degree programmes.

You will quite possibly be saddened and dismayed at what you will find (hint: it is VERY common in Swedish universities).

And then, if you dare to go anyway, don't stay isolated and inbred like the Swedish academic scene will try to teach you to be (there is a big world out there, don't waste your time in pointless Sweden):
