Lygonis, who was in Chennai in October first week, said that Sweden along with its capital city Stockholm is said to be second largest global technology centre on a per capita basis. He was quoted by the Hindu as saying that it was next only to Silicon Valley.
As more than 700 students congregated at the Sweden Education Day in Chennai to see what the educational institutions this Scandinavian country had on offer for students from India, professors and staff of eight Swedish universities took part in the event organised by Business Sweden jointly with the Swedish Embassy and the Swedish Institute.
Helen Von Wachenfelt, Lund University’s International Master Coordinator, said that 25 to 30 students come to their university from India every year for studying their masters. The courses that these students apply to include food technology, nutrition and biotechnology.
Lina Solander, Uppsala University’s International Officer, said that they had for many years been witnessing a lot of interest from Indian students in their university and they, in fact, constituted the second largest set of non-EU students at their university.
According to her, they receive close to 3,000 international students every year either for exchange studies or full-degree programmes.
The number of students applying to educational students in Sweden has increased to 3,800 this year compared to 2,500 in 2015.
