Living in Sweden & financing your studies

Good to know when you live and study in Sweden

Please note that there is a shortage of housing in Stockholm. Finding a place to stay (room or flat) can be difficult and time consuming. We recommend you begin looking as soon as you've applied.

- Do not come the weekend before term start thinking you can find a place

- In July most Swedes are on vacation and many services are closed

- Scams are increasingly common. Be careful of transferring money in advance and use recognized services if possible.

More information on student housing can be found here

Applicants from countries outside the EU, the EEA and Switzerland are required to pay both an application fee and tuition fees for all studies.
