    The Uppsala University provided me a rewarding education. Their impressive technology allowed me to have hands-on experience in my major. In addition to this, the small class size also helped me to interact with the professors. Thus graduating from the Uppsala University has helped me in grooming myself. A centralized application form helped me to get into the university. The fee charged for it was SEK 900.

    Scholarship :

    Scholarships like O. af Acrels stipendiestiftelse, Adlersparre, Ahlberger, and Ahlberg, J Language/Arts are available at the university under various foundations. As I did not qualify for the university scholarships, I got it from my home country. My yearly tuition fee of SEK 20,000 - 25,000 used to get reimbursed through that scholarship.
