Top Scholarships in Sweden for International Students in 2020

The Swedish Higher Institutions has introduced application and tuition fees for international students who want to study in Universities and University Colleges in Sweden, from 2011 academic year (except Nationals of member states of the European Economic Area – EEA – i.e. the European Union countries, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, and Switzerland).

Universities in Sweden used to be Tuition Free for both EU and Non-EU(international students), until the beginning of the autumn semester 2011. Your question, then, as a prospective student thinking of studying abroad in Sweden could be, “what possible alternative is available”?

One can agree that schooling in Sweden is easier with the usual free tuition than scholarship. Scholarships are much more uncertain what with high competition, however, international students can still expend their energy to apply for Swedish study with available scholarships for foreign students.

Universities, institutes and organisations in Sweden offer a wide range scholarships for training and academic study with English as the language of instruction. Below is the list of scholarships in Sweden for international students. You can still search further online for other possible scholarship opportunities in Sweden.
