Bedsides the very high tuition fees, international students face
problems in Sweden relating to excessive high cost of living, low
relations with industries and now access to jobs or work raining in
association with their studies. Students also face cold reception from
Swedish people which means that international student have very low
cultural learning from the Swedish society apart from interaction with
Swedish students in school. Swedish students also tend to be more
tribal and tie to themselves.
At first international student could manage the high cost of living and
free tuition by forming their own cluster against the Swedes and share
experience – international student getting more international in Sweden
while Swedes remain more local in the midst of international students.
