Sweden increasingly attractive to both foreign students and Swedes

Fewer Swedish students are going abroad to study for their degree, but the country is attracting a growing number of international students, a report has found.

“The difference between the number of foreign students studying in Sweden and Swedes studying abroad keeps increasing,” the Swedish Higher Education Authority UKÄ announced on 6 December.

In the 2017-18 academic year, only 23,800 Swedish students decided to spend time abroad—300 fewer than the year before. This continues a trend, according to the UKÄ. Meanwhile, the number of incoming students in 2017-18 stood at 37,800, an increase of 5 per cent on the previous year. This means there were 14,100 more incoming students than outgoing ones.
