Higher education is free of charge for Swedish, EU/EEA, and Swiss citizens. From 2007 higher education became divided into three levels:
Basic (degrees that can be obtained - university diploma (2 years) and degree of Bachelor (3 years)).
Advanced (degrees that can be obtained - degree of Master (1 year) and degree of Master (2 years - if you want to continue education)).
Doctoral (degrees that can be obtained - degree of Licentiate (2 years) and degree of Doctor (4 years)).
Before entering the university everybody has to demonstrate a minimum proficiency in Swedish and English.
School attendance in Sweden is compulsory (homeschooling is very restricted). "Grundskola" takes 9 years of education after that comes an elective secondary school, or “Gymnasieskola” (preparation for higher education or for vocational education). There are three core subjects in the primary school - English, Swedish, and Mathematics.
There is one interesting fact that pupils until 6th grade do not receive official grades.
Pre-school in Sweden is available for children from one to five. The main thing in pre-school in this country is the importance of child's development through games. Furthermore, gender-aware education is common in Sweden. The cost of pre-school depends on income and the place of living. For instance, in Stockholm you currently pay 3% of the income.
Public insurance is compulsory in Sweden for providing equal access to healthcare services. Private insurance is quite low in the country with 10% of the population covered. But this percent is becoming higher every year, because the average waiting time for specialist treatment (due to public insurance) is near 35 days.
There is no general statutory minimum salary for highly skilled migrants.
