I’ve looked at prospectuses from two Swedish universities (Lund and Malmo), and both have taught-in-English master’s programs that look extremely interesting. Equally interesting is that they both say that higher education tuition is wholly subsidized by the Swedish government, even for foreign students.
Is this true even on a post-baccalaureate level? For all foreign students? I noticed a link on one of the pages leading to information about scholarships available, which led to a Swedish page*, but if there are scholarships available, then there must be some fees to pay, right? I’m just fairly stunned by the idea of free education at that level for non-home/EU students, and so I want to figure out what the catch is before I get my hopes up about it.
*In case anyone’s curious, no, I don’t speak Swedish, which obviously I would go about changing if I got serious about those universities. My ideal choice of grad programs would be anywhere in London, but London is insanely expensive. Europe is somewhere I would like to spend much more time; I inherited a so-far insatiable case of wanderlust from my hippie parents.
