Higher education in Sweden
Sweden does not admit anyone just like that: to get a chance to study in this country, you will have to overcome all bureaucratic obstacles in the form of paperwork (this can take a whole year).

You can study in Sweden at institutes (the Theological Institute of Johanelund), specialized institutes (here they study technology, medicine, economics), university colleges (medical, art, pedagogical).
Those wishing to stay to work in Sweden after training should study to be mathematicians, physicists, chemists, biologists, programmers - the country is interested in young specialists of these particular specialties (they are more willing to be hired, making fewer demands on them).
Education in Swedish universities is based on a system of lectures and seminars. As for the point system, it is not entirely familiar to Russian students: 1 point is equal to 1 week. And knowledge is assessed on a three-point system: “credit with honors”, “offset”, “fail”.
Work while studying
If desired, students can work an unlimited number of hours (on a student visa), and they do not need to issue a work permit.
