This event is organised by the Sweden Alumni Network Myanmar and is open to all Sweden alumni and newly admitted students who are about to go to Sweden for studies/research.

This event is mainly targeting students who have decided to study in Sweden. There are several things that need to take into consideration and prepare in advance before they are heading to Sweden. We as an alumni in Myanmar will share a few tips and our experiences about life in Sweden and how the system works. In addition, we are aiming to provide practical recommendations and some advice on the following areas: Accommodation, Resident Permit Application, and Extension, Stuff needed to bring (e.g. Educational Certificates), Application for Personal number, ID and Bank account information, Weather conditions, How to settle in new environment, Cultural shock, Student life, Local network & Career opportunities, Student benefits and rights, Swedish Values and Customs (from Alumni’s point of view) and Possibility for Exchange Semester in partner universities in other countries.

Newcomers are going to receive tons of practical information from this event before commencing their studies in Sweden. This event presents an excellent opportunity to meet, connect and mingle with old and new Sweden alumni. Last but not least, this event will contribute to the extension of our Sweden network and promote the SISGP scholarship programme in Myanmar.
