Studying in Sweden

The Embassy provides information in the form of brochures and leaflets about studying in Sweden. Swedish universities and university colleges combine a large variety of subjects with high academic standards, offer good infrastructure and communications facilities and have an international outlook. At present, there are 10 universities and 46 other institutions of higher education.

However, due to strict visa regulations and a shortage of study places, students from foreign non-EU countries have limited chances to be selected to study in Sweden on an individual basis. Long-term and careful planning, personal funds and strong motives will be required. If admitted, the student visa will expire once the period of study is completed and it does not include a work permit. Also, it is worth mentioning that there is no agreement between the Swedish and Jordanian governments with regards to providing scholarships for Jordanian citizens at Swedish educational institutions.
