congrates to all those that got positive replys on their applications.
I completed my studies some 2 years ago in the university of malmo hia in southern sweden . I am just hearing abt the so call tax clearance . I never presented that in the embassy .When did this start .
well for all those that will make it with the visa , plz know fully well that sweden is really hard as perthere are no jobs, i mean no jobs and no one will be ready to look at ur face as per helping u with some swedish kroners .The only job for students available is to distribute newspapers at nite which have become a bit difficult to even get now not to even talk abt the harsh winter. My advice to u guys is that try and get some little money wit u that can last u for say 6mths or say one year .
People in the stockholm area will have a upper hand cos cleaning jobs are available so u can fit in. Did i hear u say cleaning ke, Thats it oooo . Thats the kind of job for people that dont know the language and from our side of the continent. wish all u guys luck as u move to the next level of coming hia , thats the visa stuff. one love,

Re: Nigerians In Sweden, How Is The Economy And Life Generally by umbawo(m): 7:22pm On May 13, 2009
@ntutu ,
Vaxjo university is a nice school but the city of vaxjo is kinda small and that makes jobs a bit difficult to get. Generally jobs are kinda hard in sweden so its not a new thing. Jobs are easier to get in copenhagen which is in denmark and that is say 3 hours from vaxjo which is not possible for u to work there and sch in vaxjo.Even if it is , u will be given a swedish residency which doesnt permit u to work in another country other than sweden,
That was the reason i applied for the university of malmo , which is say 35 mins to denmark. I was able to survive by plying the denmark - malmo route every other day.
But dont get discouraged , u could be lucky sha, but that will be real hard .

Just get say 20,000 kroners to be on the safe side.At least that will cover ur housing for say 6 mths, ur bus ticket and then some feeding doe . But pray u get something to do after that 6 mths cos it could be rough.I know of a ghana guy who after 2 mths in sweden , he had to pack his things and leave for africa cos the suffering was just unbearable. But that will not be ur portion .
The questions u will be asked in the embassy will mainly be centered n how u can support urself hia thats all. Although i now hear of them asking abt some tax clearance. I never had that on my interview becos i was on full time joint scholarship from my state government and nuffic so that made it kinda simple for me , but i tell u guys are not finding it funny without jobs.
Best of luck bro.
Re: Nigerians In Sweden, How Is The Economy And Life Generally by umbawo(m): 7:32pm On May 13, 2009
@nethacker,

I didnt apply directly from the swedish embassy in nig . When the admission came from malmo university , i was on nuffic scholarship with the university of wageningen , netherland .
All i had to do was to come back to nig and applied for a scholarship from my state , kaduna state. It was approved and i just took all the papers for the sponsorship to holland, took it to the nuffic office and then they sent it to sweden . So i was able to round up my course in netherland in time then dropped into sweden to register. Quite easy for me . But i guess u will be told wat to bring when u go to the embassy for the visa . But just know that the most important thing is the acct statement.
Best of luck

Re: Nigerians In Sweden, How Is The Economy And Life Generally by binaflexia: 10:36am On May 14, 2009
Please everyone should join me and thank God for the success of the first phase, I got admitted into university of Boras to study "BSc in Industrial Engineering - International Business Engineering". I don't actually know how to praise to for the success of the first part. In another school, i was placed on reserved list of 52 student, where 99 was admitted, this mean that if i'm interested to study in that university, i should wait for any available space (maybe from an admitted student who refuse to reply or process his/her admission). But thank God i'm not interested on the reserve list, cos another school gave me admission. So guys let me know about the status of you application and plan together on how to move forward. I hope to hear from you all soon. Goodluck to all.
Re: Nigerians In Sweden, How Is The Economy And Life Generally by nethacker(m): 10:50am On May 14, 2009
@khunleah,i was admitted but for 60cr unit course(which i think it's just for a year), who knows about it,
Re: Nigerians In Sweden, How Is The Economy And Life Generally by khunleah: 11:07am On May 14, 2009
@binaflexia, that is a gud news. pls wat is the fate of the reserved candidate?@nethacker , is it possible for me to get the admission, and when nxt is the notification for the second selection be out?
Re: Nigerians In Sweden, How Is The Economy And Life Generally by binaflexia: 11:24am On May 14, 2009
@binaflexia, that is a gud news. pls wat is the fate of the reserved candidate?@nethacker , is it possible for me to get the admission, and when nxt is the notification for the second selection be out?
I thank the almighty God for that. For your question, the next notification selection round will be published on the studera homepage. About the possibility of a reserve student getting admission, I think it is possible for you to be selected in the next round of if your result is top on the list among others (I mean good grade in your O'level result). Finally, just hope on and pray to God. Mine was just miracle, only 79 students were given admission and i was among the selected, despite my location. Good luck!
Re: Nigerians In Sweden, How Is The Economy And Life Generally by binaflexia: 11:33am On May 14, 2009
Nethacker, "Network Design and Computer Management" is 60 cr and a 1 year program. From the information i read on the net, i understand that if you plan to stay in Sweden for more than a year, you will be required to provide your medical health insurance, which in my opinion is not easy to secure. Just try and do what you can. God help you!.
Re: Nigerians In Sweden, How Is The Economy And Life Generally by khunleah: 11:45am On May 14, 2009

I really wonder why people spend so much time talking about recession and not-having money when they can actually spend that same time figuring out how best to make more money.One way to start now is to find those who may be important on your way up.Find anybody on the internet with just one click : http:///q825ng
