Can you afford studying in Gothenburg?

26 June, 2015

Soon students will know if the got into university, and several will get an acceptance letter from a school in Gothenburg… but can you really afford to studying Gothenburg?

The Association of Student Unions in Gothenburg (GFS) has shown that it costs 8 556:-/year to choose to study in Gothenburg over the average Swedish city. (Read more about this here)

GFS thinks that:
• There should be a good and varied range of student discounts in Gothenburg
• Dental care should be free for all students, regardless their age
• Building of student housing should be assisted with subsidies to enable students to have a reasonable rent
• A reasonable rent is a third of full student financial support.

Talk to your student union about what you can do th strengthen the voice of the students!
