Sweden

Sweden is a country built around the values ​​of equality and community spirit. Children are encouraged to communicate and cooperate with classmates.



State system of school education


School education in Sweden (public and independent schools) is financed by taxes and is compulsory from the age of 6. Children go to school for at least ten years after they turn six. Sweden's education system is student-oriented. Students are allowed to choose where they want to study regardless of where they live.


Swedish compulsory school education consists of four stages:

  • förskoleklass ("preschool year" or 0 year of education);

  • lågstadiet (from 1 to 3 years of study);

  • mellanstadiet (4-6 years of study);

  • high school (ages 7-9).

Sweden is a country built around the values ​​of equality and community spirit. Children are encouraged to communicate and cooperate with classmates, great attention is paid to equal treatment of people of different articles and origins.

List of documents


For foreign students, there is no single list of documents for schools, so you need to contact the school directly to receive a list of documents.


Features of private schools


Sweden has a small number of fee-paying private schools and international schools. One of the main differences between public and private schools is that private schools are not required to teach the Swedish National Curriculum. However, most private schools choose to follow this curriculum so that educational expectations and standards remain consistent across the country. Annual tuition fees at private schools typically range from SEK 30,000 to 100,000+. Because public and independent schools are free, of high quality and highly respected, international schools in Sweden are primarily designed for international students. International school fees vary by municipality and individual school.

Visa, visa issues


In connection with Russia's military aggression against Ukraine, the governments of the EU, Georgia, Canada and the USA provide Ukrainians with war protection programs. Ukrainians seeking refuge from the war on the territory of these countries will receive a residence and employment permit, children will have the opportunity to continue their studies at local schools


If you intend to come to Sweden outside of the war protection program, then citizens of Ukraine who have a valid biometric passport can stay in Sweden without an entry visa for up to 90 days. But in order for the children to go to school, you need to apply for a residence permit. To obtain a permit, contact the Swedish Migration Agency https://www.migrationsverket.se/Other-languages/Ukrainska/Direktiva-pro-timcasovij-zahist.html.
