    Are primary schools teaching in English free of charge?
    And what about PhD students? Do they receive any living financial assistance from the Swedish government?

    Francesca, there aren’t many Portuguese exchange students in Uppsala (perhaps they’re afraid of the cold?!). However, there are at least a couple of Portuguese PhD students in Biology that I’m surprised you haven’t met yet. I’m taking my masters´s degree at the Dep. of IT, so it’s natural that we’ve never crossed paths. You’re free to hit me up on facebook if you ever feel like worshiping Cristiano Ronaldo while drinking some good Port wine. (I’m joking; even though there are 2 other Portuguese in my circle of friends, it is quite diverse)
