In Sweden, students from European Union and European Economic Area can study for free. Students from other countries are required to pay tuition fees which can prove to be too high, when considering other living costs too. This is why most universities offer international students a number of scholarships in the form of a tuition waiver. This means that the students who receive the scholarship will not need to pay the tuition fee at all or will be able to pay just a part of it. This is the case of Mid Sweden University.
Mid Sweden University offers many degree programs in English, in domains like business, tourism, technology or media. For degree programs starting in autumn of 2019, there are five master degree programs eligible for a total tuition fee scholarship. This means that the students who apply for Master in Tourism, Master in Business Administration, Master in Ecotechnology and Sustainable Development, Master in Computer Engineering and Master in Embedded Sensor Systems will have a chance of studying for free if they apply and receive the scholarship. The scholarship will only cover the tuition fees, so candidates must cover their travel and living expense. The eligibility criteria are having applied to one of the above mentioned master degree programs and being required to pay a tuition fee. The application for the scholarship is made online, after the application for the master degree.
The deadline is 15 January 2019. Find the answers to other questions about the scholarship on the university website.
Whatever is your educational goal, scholarships can make it happen if financial support is all you need in order to succeed. Unfortunately, not all students can obtain a scholarship or afford to relocate into another city or another country, in order to study at a campus university. These students must remember that they can get a college degree online. Online colleges and online universities are becoming an attractive option for students who look for lower educational costs and higher flexibility in their lives. Getting a college degree online means learning from home, attending online classes and passing online exams. Most online colleges and universities are verified by official education institutions in order to obtain an accreditation. So the quality of their programs is usually guaranteed by an accreditation from the department of education. It is important to choose an accredited online university, because this way your diploma will be more useful and more valuable after graduation.
