Our method is based on working together with other students at the school on projects and you will learn how to present yourself in casting, how to do make-up and costume for stage and film, and you will get basic knowledge on how a theatre and a filmset works.
To ensure a high level of quality and each student’s individual development, we only accept a few students each year. The educators and administrators work daily to ensure that each student has access to all aspects of an excellent acting education, and excellent opportunities to develop and succeed as a professional within the film and theatre business in Sweden and abroad.

INFORMATION REGARDING YOUR STAY IN SWEDEN
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.
Stockholm Film School does not have the possibility to offer accommodation for students.
The average price range for rooms in Stockholm is €400 to €1000 a month depending of the distance to the city centre.
There are several webpages that offer accommodations, for example blocket.se and andrahand.se. Although the majority of rentals posted online are legit, you should always 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.
