You might have heard of Uppsala University before thinking of studying in Sweden. Uppsala University is the first Swedish university, founded in 1447. The university ranks among the first 100 universities in the world and hosts about 40 000 students. Fifteen Nobel Prize laureates have graduated from Uppsala University and 8 of them have been awarded the prize for research done while at the university. The institution offers degree programs from three study domains: medicine and pharmacy, technology and science and social sciences and humanities.
The Uppsala University President’s Club Scholarship is aimed at a talented and successful master degree international candidate. Is covers the tuition fees, but not the living expenses. Because students from the European Union, European Economic Area and Switzerland are not required to pay tuition fees in Sweden, the scholarship is dedicated to international students coming from countries outside these zones. The scholarship will be awarded based on academic merit and talent, to students who have applied for a master degree program, delivered on campus.
The application process for master degree programs starting in autumn of 2019 will take place between 16 January to 1 February 2019. The application is online and there are not required additional documents from the candidates. Find more information about the university, the scholarship and other types of financial support here.
There are not always scholarships available for all the students who need them, unfortunately. So what is to do if you are a student who did not receive a scholarship and does not have the financial means to support his studies? You can get your college education online. Online schools and online universities are chosen from students from any corner of the world because they offer many benefits. They have lower tuition taxes and provide greater flexibility in terms of daily study scheduling. So, obtaining your college education online is less expensive than going to a traditional university and allows you to freely organize your daily schedule. There is an important aspect all students who are considering online schools should know. That is the accreditation of the university they plan to enroll. Online schools and universities which have been verified by the department of education and have been found to respect quality standards receive an accreditation. It is important to obtain an online degree from an accredited university, because that way the degree is recognized by other educational institutions and by companies.
