Residence permit for looking for work
You can get a residence permit to stay in Sweden for another entire year after graduating to look for jobs or start your own business. So while seizing all the opportunities before your graduation, you do not need to feel stressed about a permit to stay.
Swedish teaching methods
As a student at Uppsala University, you will not just sit in lectures and listen to professors teaching theories. Seminars, group work, excursions, laboratory work, field studies and independent studies are some of the other important teaching methods used at the University. The goal is for you to truly learn, instead of only memorising what is written in books. In seminar discussions you will learn how to think critically, in presentations you will practise your communication skills, through group work you will become a team player, and in laboratory work you will sharpen your practical skills, just to give a few examples. All these abilities can increase your employability and are very important for your future career development, wherever you choose to be in the world.
You should feel confident engaging in classroom activities and sharing your thoughts, ideas and feelings. This is a way to take responsibility for your learning and development, with the support of teaching staff. Meanwhile, try to keep a balance between your studies and your social life and well-being. Your experience as an international Master's student will give you many soft skills valuable for your future career.
