    More Foreign Students Choose Swedish Universities

    More foreign students choose Swedish universities


    The number of foreign students studying at Swedish colleges and universities continues to climb to record levels.

    Last academic year, one quarter of all new students at Swedish institutes of higher education came from other countries.

    And according to preliminary statistics from the Sweden’s National Agency for Higher Education (Högskoleverket), enrollment of foreign students is up an additional 17 percent for the current academic year compared to figures from the previous year, Dagens Nyheter (DN) reports.

    Moreover, foreign students make up about 43 percent of the increase in new students enrolled in Swedish universities over the last two years.

    Most foreign students are considered “free movers” who choose to pursue higher education in Sweden on their own initiative, and most choose to enroll in technical programmes.

    Stockholm’s Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) has around 3,000 foreign students out of a total enrollment of 13,400 full time students and doctoral candidates.

    While the majority of the schools exchange students come from other European countries, more than 90 percent of the students enrolled in KTH’s masters programmes come from countries outside of Europe such as China, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan.

    Judging from most of the students at my old university in Glasgow when i was there last year for a graduate recruitment fair, i think it's pretty much the same situation there as well. I know that it usually costs a heck of a lot more to study at a university as a foreign (international) student, so it does seem strange that a lot of them seem to come from African countries, who are always having aid money sent to them from western countries anyway.
    I was hoping i might be able to study in Australia, but the fees there are unbelieveably expensive, although i'm sure there are also lots of Africans etc there too, and it wouldn't surprise me if there is some kind of 'arrangement' going on whereby if you're from some African country, or China or somewhere then you get your fees paid. I know for a fact that many refugees get preferential treatment when it comes to housing. I remember someone who had a friend who works for some housing association, and they wouldn't give a house to a single mother and her kids because it was going to a family from the Congo!!
    Love all living things whose humble task is not opposed in any way to yours, to ours: men with simple hearts, honest, without vanity and malice, and all the animals, because they are beautiful, without exception and without exception indifferent to whatever "idea" there may be. Love them, and you will see the eternal in the glance of their eyes of jet, amber, or emerald. Savitri Devi
