Sweden is sustainable, innovative and home to the Nobel Prize. When you study in Sweden, you’re encouraged to think independently, creatively and critically. This independence of mind and the fact that everyone can make their voice heard are two of the reasons why Sweden ranks among the world’s most innovative nations, writes the consulate general.

Sweden has a long and proud history of academic excellence. Despite its relatively small population, it is home to some of the world’s best universities.
