Is this for real? Why are there no tuition fees?

Can anyone explain this to me please?

I can't tell you about the fees, but I know this school very well and it is simply great (good faculty, nice people, accredited)! However, you have to like Scandinavian winters... ;-)

Best,

This is true that UMEA has no tuition fee, this is because the education in Sweden is funded by the government..

It's also worth noting that most Swedish students finance their living costs and other expenses through taking out a government loan. These, however, are not available to international students. Bear in mind that the cost of living in Sweden is relatively high, at least as compared with many other European countries.

Hi sattar

Full-time students are entitled to work in Sweden for the duration of their student visa (you don't need a seperate work permit). For your housing costs, books and other living expenses you should count in about SEK 7000 to SEK 8000 a month. Students from outside EU must obtain a student VISA, in which they can show that they can pay for their living expenses in Sweden during their studies: www.migrationsverket.se "

For an MBA program I would recommend the Stockholm School of Economics (Equis accredited)

Best of luck to you

Sweden will soon be getting rid of free tuition for international students, if they haven't done so already.

Also, Stockholm School of Economics only offers part-time Executive MBA programs.

Jönköping International is not AACSB-accredited, nor does it offer an MBA.

Yes the tuition in Sweden was free but not for MBA programs, only for BSc, MSc and PhD. It was subsidized by the government until now. Starting 2011, Swedish business schools will start charging non EU students. However, it remains free for EU citizens.
