The Study in Sweden fair will present Indian students, especially undergraduate students, with various prospects for further studies in Sweden. The students will have the opportunity to get first-hand information from representatives of leading Swedish universities, including the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) and the University of Jonkoping, about the post graduate programmes they can attend.
Students can also avail themselves of a free counselling session and receive information about scholarships, visa opportunities and student life in Sweden, says a release.
The consecutive education fairs in Chennai, Mumbai and New Delhi from November 21-24 are organised by the Consulate General of Sweden in Mumbai and the Embassy of Sweden in India, Office of Science and Innovation in New Delhi, in collaboration with Nordic Centre India.
