More International Students in Stockholm
19 February, 2019
In the last three years, the number of international students in Stockholm has increased by 20%, which corresponds to 1,630 more inbound students. During the past academic year, this number increased by 5% compared to the previous year, which brings the total number to 9,750 inbound students. This means that the number of international students in Stockholm is approaching 10,000.
For the first time since tuition fees were introduced, China is the country with the largest group of international students in Stockholm. The number of students from Germany, which had been the largest, or second largest, inbound group in Stockholm for many years, has also seen an increase but not at the same rate as China and is therefore in third place this year.
This comes from the new report Study Destination: Stockholm. Report on International Student Mobility in 2017-2018, today published by Stockholm Academic Forum.
