So what’s a good way to enter the country? Niklas Tranaeus, marketing manager, of the Swedish Institute (SI), a public agency that promotes Sweden, says many students are eligible to apply for an SI scholarship (studyinsweden.se) that covers both tuition fee and cost of living or scholarships awarded directly by the universities. Karolinska’s scholarship round for programmes starting in the autumn 2014 will open on October 17 in with the application to the master’s programmes. These will, however, only cover the tuition fee cost, not living expenses. The application is made online and will be available on: http://ki.se/ki/jsp/polopoly.jsp?d=581&a=104191&l=en
The selection process will be based on the applicant’s CV and qualifications that will be evaluated in connection with the application for a KI study programme.
