INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR STAY IN SWEDEN



COST OF LIVING IN SWEDEN (2018)
The cost of living is approximate 7,600€ / year. This is excluded rental and private health insurance.


VISA FOR NON-EU STUDENTS
Non-EU students need to apply for student visa. Click here for information about how to apply for student visa.


HEALTH INSURANCE 
EU/EEA/Swiss citizens -you should register for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) in your home country before coming to Sweden. This card gives you the right to medical care at the same cost as Swedes.

Non-EU/EEA citizens: stays of less than one year
– If you have a residence permit valid for a period of less than a year, you won’t have access to the public health insurance. Students who aren’t covered by the public health insurance must arrange for their own insurance coverage, as medical treatment can be very expensive without any form of insurance. It’s highly recommended to arrange for health insurance from your home country so that you’re covered during your trip to Sweden and as soon as you arrive.



ACCOMODATION
Please be advised that Stockholm Film School will not be able to provide accommodation for students. There is a huge shortage of apartments for rent in Stockholm and it is important that you start looking for housing well in advance. The average price range for rooms are 280€ to 850€ a month depending of the distance to Stockholm city centre.
There are several webpages that offer accommodations. Although the majority of rentals posted online are legit, you will sporadically find some “bad people” out there and you should follow these three simple rules for your safety:
1. Never pay before signing the contract
2. Ask the landlord for their personal id when signing the contract to validate their information (they will do the same with you so don’t be shy).
3. Pay the deposit only to a Swedish bank account
