Swedish Higher Education

For those of you interested in persueing a degree in Sweden, we advice to check the website Studyinsweden.se, which is built and maintained by the Swedish Institute, a public agency tasked with promoting Sweden abroad. It is a comprehensive, official resource on studying in Sweden for prospective and current international students. Here you’ll find everything you need to know on the Swedish higher education system, finding and applying for a programme, searching for scholarships, living as an international student in Sweden and learning Swedish. You can also explore Sweden’s many universities and hear from accomplished alumni on how choosing Sweden changed their lives.

In addition, once a year, Swedish universities go on a road show and promote their institutions in Brazil. Check on their website and facebook page for further information. They will also participate in our annual Sweden-Brazil Career Fair on 8 October, 2015 in São Paulo.

Visa regulations for Brazilians

Furthermore, the website of the Swedish Embassy in Brasília provides relevant information for Brazilian citizens who want to visit, study or work in Sweden. Here you can clearing up your doubts also in Portuguese.

Social Connections

Students may find it easier to connect with fellow class mates at university. Most Swedes speak English very well and are glad to help with information needed.

In case you are not a student anymore, you might like to join a multi-sports club in your city which offers different kinds of sport disciplines for the entire family. There you will find e.g. a nice group to play football as well as gymnastics classes for your daugther.
