  • In Sweden you are in charge of your own studies to a large extent. Full-time studies in Sweden correspond approximately to a 40-hour week, although you might only have a few hours of lectures or seminars each week. Teaching may take other forms, such as seminars, group work, laboratory work and independent studies. Each course or programme is measured in credits, using the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS). 30 credits are equal to the workload of a full-time student over one semester.
  • Sweden is founded on democracy where everyone has the same right to give their opinion. This principle is present in all parts of the society and plays an important role in the academic world, where discussions are encouraged. Don’t be surprised if the teacher asks you for your opinion during class as this is a way of involving the students and developing critical thinking.
