Cause Sweden is an expensive country if one is not earning money there. What would You do it You had a 200Euro grant per month?? My appartment was 2500 SEK per month, so the grant was not even enough for this. Plus 500 SEK per month for public transport ticket... and food and stuff ... Let's face it, Sweden is an expensive country, especially Stockholm. This unfortunately is caused by the grant, which was THE SAME wherever one went - which is plain STUPID!!!! A friend of mine who had the choice between Italy and Sweden chose Italy, for obvious reasons! :-) ok it was a relief to write that ;-) thank You

You called my degree MSc with a major in the Built Environment. Why did you not call it MSc in Property Economics because yuo call it Fastighets Ekonomi in Swedish language?

sweden is an expensive country. even if students access certain facilities, it's not possible to compare lisbon and stockholm. some comments: in sweden you can bring lunch to uni and warm it up in microwaves (it's traditional, social and cheap ;)! ps. don't forget that erasmus is a special occasion for travelling and nightlife...

take lunch to university if you have the chance! phone as well as internet are quite cheap. ikea provides nice furniture at reasonable prices. cinema, dinner out and discos are expensive but a hot dog costs you around 1 euro...

Starting from the point that i come from Macedonia the prices in Sweden were high for me; even though the housing price was not too high and not too low. I lived in a dorm in Kista. A good thing for the location of the dorms was that one of the campuses are located on a walking distance from the dorm but if you have classes in other campuses of KTH you would have to go by metro or train.

It is very good if you get a roon in a student residence. This is usually the case, but sometime they put up people in rented rooms at private houses which is not so good. It is really hard to find accomodation on your own. If you plan to go to Stockholm, provide yourself with accomodation before you arrive there.
