Bucket list: Sweden Edition

Travelling for me, and I’m sure for quite a lot of us, is a liberating experience. It’s something that we all want to do.. To put on our backpacks, take that ticket and travel all over the world and leave our worries behind. And for those of us studying in Sweden, we sure have a lot of places to go, rejuvenate and be amazed. And what better time to travel than the holiday season! So Here is my bucket-list, Sweden Edition.

    Hi, I’ll be coming to sweden next year for studies. Is it possible to find part time jobs there for us indians? did you find one? Is it manageable to work part-time alongside studies considering 40 hour workweek there?

      You can find a part time job, if you want. It isnt easy to get but there are opportunities. I would advise you to come and settle down first, see the intensity of work load for your Master’s degree course and then only consider applying for a part-time job, since the workdload and studies for Master’s is quiet demanding.
