If you are going to do contract or specialisation education, you and your co-applicant family members can now get a residence permit for up to four years at a time instead of one year as it was before. Your co-applicant family members can now also be granted work permits.
The Swedish Institute has carried out two live broadcasts. The purpose was to guide through the process of applying for a residence permit for studies and applying to extend a residence permit for studies in Sweden. The Swedish Migration Agency was present and answered questions during the broadcasts.
